Spring Forward

Ping Wong

Some exciting new features are being rolled out this weekend:

Blog Mode

And a new secret feature: embedded file lists can now take blog_mode=true to be smarter about the dates of posts. Previously, the date used was the file's last-modified date.

With blog mode, if you prefix a file with its date, e.g. 2012-12-25-Christmas Delight.txt, that date gets displayed instead! This means you can make changs to a post without changing the date which is shown.
