Most recent topics list on basket home-pages should exclude default topics and topics allocated as basket home-pages

Reported by James | December 12th, 2008 @ 09:43 AM | in 1.2

After some discussion it has been suggested that the most recent topics list, which is optionally displayed on basket home-pages should exclude:

  • All default topics added during Kete bootstrap
  • Any topics allocated to baskets as basket home-pages

This is because displaying changes to default topics or basket home-pages is generally unintuitive and usually not useful or relevant for site visitors.

Cheers,

James

    Basically this boils down to topics in the standard baskets... the exception is when you are IN one of the standard baskets and latest topics is turned on, of course.

    Below is an excerpt of a chat regarding this tickets work.

    kieran: So no homepage on any basket should be shown in the recent topics. Site basket should exclude default topics, but all other baskets should show then (about basket should show about standard topics). Is that still valid?

    walter: right no basket should show its own homepage topic in recent topics. About site basket excluding topics from standard baskets is correct. And yes, standard baskets should not exclude their own topics from recent topics (except for homepage). I guess i'm going to drop the "no homepage of any basket should be shown in recent topics for site basket homepage". I can imagine that that is overkill and counterintuitive to discovery. Lets say that a user creates a new basket that is devoted to personal history, they create a basket homepage topic of topic type person and put the bulk of their info in there... that would seem like it should show up on site recent topics. Thoughts?

    kieran: I agree. It should show up on the site. One last thing, how would you determine default topics?

    walter: where basket_id not in (@standard_baskets). sort of thing. although you will need to pull site basket out of that array. so new array = @standard_baskets - [@site_basket]. iirc

    kieran: What if someone adds a topic to those baskets though? wouldn't those then get excluded too?

    walter: yes, as they probably should. you might want to add a system setting that allows you to turn the exclusion off, but have it on by default. Most normal sites won't want them treated as normal content that is highlighted as new. is my feeling

    james: adding a basket setting which makes the baskets contents not appear on site basket recent topics
