I'd like to suggest the addition of the ability to exclude blog posts by category when creating a gallery of posts.
A site I'm developing for a client employs several separate blog instances.
One blog instance is for managing which employees are displayed on team pages. We can quickly add/remove team members simply by adding/changing/removing a category from their bio. We can slice and dice employees using categories like title or division. It's really quite handy.
Another blog I'm using on that same site is for managing the display of projects executed by this client, with separate pages created for each project type. Galleries work really great and allows automatic updating of category pages – adding a new project to a gallery is as simple as making a new post and then applying the correct category to it. I can even reorder items by changing their publication date and time - it's a hack, but it works!
But I think I found a missing feature...
We already have the ability to constrain posts by specifying which categories we want to feature.
However, we do not have the ability to exclude post types by category.
Programmatically speaking, this isn't difficult.
Anyway, thanks for reading.
This has been my first post to this community.
I have been increasingly pleased with my ability to customize the Squarespace platform to achieve design behavior above and beyond the standard templates. I fully expect for this request to exclude posts by category to go nowhere, but as they say: nothing ventured, nothing gained. At least I tried!
