Active Renderer is Too Easy

Yet another minor enhancement to the site that I’ve been meaning to do for a while. I just installed Marc Barrot’s Active Renderer plug-in. It’s going to allow me to do a bunch of nice user interface things on the site (including fixing the blogroll on the home page), but initially the biggest change is the cleaner interface for daily posts. Now every day has a little wedge next to it that looks like this:

By default, prior day’s posts are collapsed. Click on the black wedge, and you’ll see the posts for that day. This cleans up the home page considerably, and makes navigation pretty straightforward.

The most incredible thing about this is how ridiculously simple it was to implement. Download the file, save it to your Radio Tools folder (the Tools folder is in your Radio Userland folder). Shut down and restart Radio, then go to the preferences page for Active Renderer. Check the boxes to activate it, and you’re all set. Publish your home page and enjoy!
