Adding Post Categories

Until about 20 minutes ago all posts on the blog appeared in one long list.  Now they don’t have to.

David suggested that it might be a good idea to have a separate space for any posts that are only really intended for that author’s future reference.  I agree that it’s potentially a good idea to provide separate spaces for the “hey everyone, here’s an idea” posts and the “here’s something I really need to look at in the morning” posts.

The only real concern seemed to be that interesting posts might get lost and so I’ve added in a new widget which prominently displays the 10 most recent posts regardless of which category they are in.  I’ve also added a category choice widget.

Also, as a side effect of choosing a single category to display, the front page now only shows the first few lines of each post.  I’m not sure whether this is an improvement.  It does make it easier to scan through the posts but you can’t see the pretty pictures any more.

Let’s give it a go and see what we think.

PS: David, this is a test. Please comment on this post when you read it otherwise I’ll think categories might not be such a good idea ;-).
