I'd like to make the Logbook work more automatically. Some things I'd like:
A special page with a calendar view of previous log entries for the month (month as a parameter, defaults to current month). This would replace the hand-built en:Wikitravel:Logbook, which is hard to keep up to date.
A custom tag, <logbook>, that would make a list with links to the last N logbook entries (an attribute, defaults to 5?). This would replace the little logbook widget on en:Wikitravel:Project.
A special page that includes in total the last few logbook entries (10? 20?) so they look like the Wikitravel Shared:Traveller's Pub. Edit links would let you edit each entry.
An RSS feed for Logbook entries.
This wouldn't be too challenging, except that the format of logbook entries differs on the different language versions (since dates are formatted differently). I think that the easiest way to make this all work is to make a new custom namespace, like "Logbook:", and every Logbook article is moved to that namespace. --Evan 19:04, 8 November 2006 (EST)
