Using Metadata to Manage Posts and Articles In Blot

That set of links at the bottom of the post … oh and the comment below the links explaining the source of the post - and where it comes from … well they aren’t actually part of this post. They are two separate files that I have in a folder that will become full of different kinds of templates/footers - and then call as needed.

This will save hard coding the footers that I want to use - and also allows me to better manage useful information, since I can modify it once and it will change everywhere.

As always special thanks to David Merfield for helping me through this ….

I am happy to write this and expain how I did it …. if other blot users will find it helpful. Let me know.
