As you can see on the UK page, it is possible to display news or events that have a special tag, e.g. a country code. This helps setting up pages easily with specific news items or events. The list of people displayed on this same page has also been automated, so it makes it easy to implement your own country page.
A tag should be in CamelCase except for special tags like
newsletter. So for instance, the tag “very important subject” should be
A tag should contain a
content attribute except for special tags.
<tag content="Windows Tax">WindowsTax</tag>
If you are translating, you should never edit what is “here” between
<tag>here</tag> but you can add a translated
content attribute. For instance, take an English file with:
“Ruling” in French would be “Décision de justice” so you should do:
<tag content="Décision de justice">Ruling</tag>
For most pages (when your file has the xhtml), the tags must be added within <html> </html> usually at the end.
A list of tags currently in use can be found here. We also have a list of all tagged pages, events and news. Please check these pages first to avoid making duplicated tags, use existing tags if possible to keep things consistent.
<news> [...] <tags> <tag>front-page</tag> <tag content="Software Patents">Swpats</tag> <tag content="Novell">Novell</tag> </tags> </news>
<event> [...] <tags> <tag>front-page</tag> <tag content="Italy">it</tag> </tags> </event>
Please note that only events and news items being tagged as front-page will appear on the front page of fsfe.org!
Tags should all be written in English; there is no need for translation since the tags do not appear online, but are used internally for filtering news items or events.
<xsl:with-param name="tag" select="'your tag'"/>
<xsl:with-param name="nb-items" select="'x'" />
Works exactly as the fetch-news template, but does not propose tagging yet.
fetch-events works in a very similar manner to fetch-news, tag and nb-items work the same way. Here are some addings:
<xsl:with-param name="wanted-time" select="'future|present|past'" />
<xsl:with-param name="header" select="'future|current|past'" />
<xsl:with-param name="display-details" select="'yes|no'" />
The very first thing to do is to create a folder with your country
code, e.g. "/de", "/uk" or "/it" in the root folder of the fsfe-web
svn (you will see other country folders there).
You may want to copy the three common files you'll find in already existing country folders, e.g uk.en.xhtml, uk.xsl and uk.sources, and of course rename them accordingly.
2. You should not have to modify **.sources. You want to change the countrycode variable in the **.xsl file to your country code, modifying the following line.
<xsl:variable name="country-code">xx</xsl:variable>In the **.**.xhtml page, you should only change the identi.ca account, or deactivate it if your country team does not have one yet.
"user":"fsfeuk",Play further with this file if you want to change the display of your country page.
<person id="mueller" member="yes" teams="main, de">
People tagged with your country code will appear in your country page's people list. (If you want to add a person that is not there yet, be careful not to add him/her to the "main" team if he/she is not a member of it).
For people's pictures, you should put a 48*48 pixels picture in the /about/id folder named id-avatar.jpg. Then edit /about/people/people.en.xml and add a line for avatar to the picture URL.
In order to give proper credits to the authors of articles you can add tags like these:
<author> <name>John Doe</name> <link>http://johndoe.me</link> <avatar>http://johndoe.me/me.png</avatar> </author> <!-- For FSFE team members, you can take the information directly from /about/people/people.en.xml, for instance: --> <author id="gerloff" /> <date> <revision content="2010-03-24" /> <original content="2009-11-27" /> </date> <!-- Feel free to add more than one revision tag if see fit --> <download type="pdf" content="/link/to/download-file.pdf" />
Bear in mind that these tags should be included like any other tags, that means they should be at the end, before </html>
