Added blog tags in Webby

I just found out that Webby is no long under active development =(. What a sad piece of news. However, with the current Webby version, it’s still good enough for me to maintain my blog. Since it’s relatively easy to extend, I decided to add tags to Webby.

I saved a link to Aarom Qian blog post about adding tags to Webby a long time ago, but unfortunately the blog is no longer online. I dug around and was able to find his github repository and the raw textile/erb entry in there. You can see it here: Adding Blog Tags using Webby.

In general his directions were pretty clear and everything worked well. It explained how to setup the tags framework and how to use rake tasks to generate the tag pages. However, I did need to make some minor hacks to get it working. I’ll try to add a tutorial blog entry if i have time. I’d also be more than happy to answer any questions if anyone is having trouble implementing tags.

In the mean time, try to follow along his post, or check out the source of this blog on my github account. Enjoy!
