I’m having posts on my blog, and some posts are grouped inside a branch. When listing the elements for displaying a list, I’m listing only first level leafs mixed with first level branches.
(Things are just a bit more complicated because there’s a “year” level between blog and posts, but I don’t think it is usefull to add this complexity here)
Eg for this stucture:
content |_ blog |_ post1.md |_ post2.md |_ branch1 | |_ _index.md | |_ branch1post1.md | |_ branch1post2.md |_ post3.md
branch1 is included in my list with the caracteristics of its
_index.md file, wich has a date in its front matter. So when sorting my listing by date,
branch1 is sorted looking at that front matter date.
But this is not what I want: I would like to look at the date of
branch1 latest leaf (eg the date of
branch1post2, not at the date in the
At this time, I’m doing it manually: I change the date in front matter of
_index.md to reflect the date of the latest post in the branch. But this is not a clean way to do it : it is tedious and error prone, and if collaborating with people to manage posts, I have to explain this to them.
I did not see a “Page” variable or function that I can use for sorting things : I mean, something returning
- the date of the latest leaf in branch if page is a branch,
- the date of the page itself if page is a leaf.
Can anybody help me solve this problem ?
