Description

... meaning: the pagination is missing. I can only see the news entries on https://tails.boum.org/news/ but I can't go further back. I think such pagination links existed at some point.

Hi,

... meaning: the pagination is missing.

Indeed, ikiwiki does not support pagination

I think such pagination links existed at some point.

AFAICT there's never been any pagination. But before 2d10154ee8f45b6765c6a4619fe8b4ecab5eb869 we were displaying all blog posts. This would not scale anymore nowadays.

We could do this:

  1. Create a new page, that lists only older blog posts, that are not included in /news (we can do this with the skip= parameter of the inline directive). I think that page should only contain links to these blog posts instead of inlining their content. Alternatively, that page could list all blog posts. I have no strong opinion about which is best.
  2. Link to that new page from /news.

How does it sound?

Now, this issue has been here since 6.5 years, so I suspect that very few people need to access this information, and the same very few people can find it in Git.
So I would happily review a branch that implements a solution (with a small enough impact on build performance) but I'm afraid I can't justify spending more time on it myself any time soon. If I missed important use cases, please let me know :)
