I've been hacking away at my outliner all day long with results being posted on the dutch blog. What I want to achieve is an ouline for each day. Each node in the ouline should become an item in my RSS feed. I can actually get some of that working, but then it seems impossible to insert a comment link unless configured by hand at each posting.
The comment links I can do without, and predict we eventually will switch most comment people to their own weblogs and connect them with "trackback" or something similar. For now I'm happy enough just being able to subscribe to someone's weblog. Eventually I'll see a comment or response show up in my aggregator or referrer logs.
Somehow this all feels like I want a mix of Manila's static rendering and homepage editing with Radio UserLand's outliner so I can edit (and move) posts up or down with their associated comment links, permalinks and anything else definied in an item template. I want to use rules in my outliner and would like to user radio as the engine to get it all published, including a non funky rss feed. I think this is similar to the set up for Scripting News, but without the comment links, which need a new unique id (postID?) generated on the fly. Can my outliner do all this?
Postscript: Marc points to activerenderer as a soultion. I use AR to render outlines frequently, but I don't see where it allows me to have a single outline per day, per category. I also don't want clickable nodes on my log's homepage. AR is cool, but doesn't solve the problem.
