It's not for people that don't understand code at all, but I can't see much of a way to make it simpler.
The current default template looks like this:
#foreach($link in $links)
<li class="link"><A href="$link.URL">$link.Title</A>
<BR><span class="link-tags">(tags:#foreach($tag in $link.Tags) <A href="$tag.TagURL">$tag.Tag</A>#end )</span>
which basically says:
- Start a list
- For each link in the collection of links:
- Create a new list item and put the link title in it, and make that title a hyperlink to the URL of the link.
- If the link has a description, then put it in, on a new line.
- Add a new line, and then put in each tag, turning it into a hyperlink back to the site that the links came from (i.e. delicious or pinboard)
- end the list item
- end the list
If you're going to play around with it then use the "Test" input and output settings, so that you're not constantly scraping the source links/posting to your journal. If you completely mess it up then hit the "Reset Templates" button to restore the original template.
Next up - a template for the subject line/title.
