I want to turn my home page into a composite stream, full posts of every type (so normal posts, but also other “posts” from collections as well). However there are a few condition I’m looking to fulfill.
One of said conditions being I don’t want to output every single post on one page, obviously there will be a "limit: " filter in one of the liquid tags, but I’m not sure which tag that would be. There will be pagination to access the rest (but perhaps using the limit filter is unnecessary with pagination involved?).
I also want to group and sort all output by the post/document date in reverse chronological order.
Lastly, and this is what is causing most of my grief, is I wish to do all this but skipping certain collections (a folder/collection of webmentions for instance).
I’ve been banging my head against my desk the last little while trying to figure this out. Help would be greatly appreciated.
