Wow! I guess I never looked at the ChannelMaintenance.ini file before, I didn't know you could add items to the list.
I've got a couple of ".CHANNEL file hacks" that I think are useful that I will add to Awasu's Wiki. When I add these wiki page(s) I'll also include the necessary lines to add these settings to the ChannelMaintenance.ini file so that a user can modify these settings with the Channel Maintenance utility.
By the way HPKallmeyer
, there's an atom feed for Awasu Wiki updates, if you're interested:
http://www.awasu.com/wiki/index.php?tit ... &feed=atom
"the time to keep the channel items"
If I understand what you're asking for then I believe there's a front door for these settings
You can set the default time to keep the channel items:
* From the "Tools" menu select "Options"
* Click the "Archive" button
* Update the "Keep content for" setting
And on a Channel-by-Channel basis:
* Select the Channel's Properties
* Click the "Advanced" button
* In the "Archive settings" section update the "Keep content for" setting
Similarly, but different, Awasu also has a "Show the last" setting which determines what is displayed in a Channel Summary Template, even though the archive settings may retain the feed items for a longer period of time.
There's a lot of configuration options in Awasu!
