I was speaking to @seblog about categorisation of contents in our websites and some ideas came into mind:

  • Now I have sections for each post type and a special section for posts that should so up in home.
  • Sections are automatically added to the posts when they are created based on their post type.
  • Realistically, who will follow a feed based on the post type? And why?
  • @seblog suggests a more audience-based categorisation, such as “personal”, “tech”, etc. I’ve had that way back in the past and I really don’t remember if it was good or not. However, I understand the appeal.
  • @seblog said that types distiction are not that useful, it’s just easy to make.
  • We both already have tags. But tags feel too overly-specific.
  • Both tags and sections are… at the end of the day… taxonomies.
  • On my website I could technically achieve this with either tags or sections. Sections seem best as they are more general. Also, audience-based names would not collide with post types so they could still be at the root of the website, such as /personal or /articles.
  • Manually categorising a post every time we post can become arduous.
  • Is it worth it?

Let’s conclude with taxonomies are hard. What do you think?

Don’t think anyone cares much about those.) So I’ve got separate feeds (and sections) for them. Anybody who wanted—nobody, most likely—a feed for, e.g., only replies co…10 Jun 2022 10:26

Currently I have various feeds for various post types. I don’t want to link them all here, in case I want to change them around, but I have different feeds that onl…09 Jun 2022 20:42
