News Related Tags

The following tags are used in the News section of the website. Their functionality is very specific, thus can probably not be used anywhere else.

The tag definitions can be found in debian/women/tags/news.wml.

The <news> tag creates an entry for a news item on the page. It takes three attributes: title, author and time. title defines the caption of the news item, while author specifies the name of the person who wrote the item.

The time attribute is a little more special. It takes either a string, which will be displayed as the time at which the entry was written, or the special value <timestamp>, in which case the ctime of the file that contains the news item will be used.
