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)
