Editing Manila News Items with Radio
- I'm an outliner geek now. I'm completely sucked in. That said, I want
to edit a Manila news item with Radio's outliner, but I can't. To wit:
I can not apply rendering rules to a Manila news item and that makes
I create a news item from the web UI. Manila creates a new table entry
for the message and when I open it in the outliner, here's what I get:
<description>Description of the Foo news item. ;
This is the entire text of the news item.</description>
<title>Foo Department Summary</title>
Now, when I apply rules anywhere in this, it hoses the HTML version of
the news item. Anyone have any bright ideas? A search of the Manila
and Radio DGs turned up some posts about news items and outlines, but
not rules. The layout looks like I'm editing raw XML, right?

groups and news items, you probably know a lot more about this subject
than I do.
Nevertheless, from what you describe, I would assume that the Frontier
renderer used when publishing news items - the one responsible for
converting the XML news structure you see in your Radio outliner - is
somewhat different from the renderer called by Frontier when
publishing discussion group posts, which understands the <rules> XML
tags you insert to influence the published HTML style, as described
Whether this is a bug of the news items renderer or an interesting
feature request for the next version of Manila is for Userland to
Whether this discussion belongs in this group is debatable :-) Is
there a manila or manila-dev discussion space ?
