Do not use tag links in the following format:


These kind of tag links will be counted on your tag or category page.

For tag links use this markup instead:


Refreshing calendar pages, example

cd ~/yourblog
cp archives/2018/*.mdwn archives/2019/
find archives/2019/ -type f -name '*.mdwn' -exec sed -i 's/2019/2020/g' {} \;


For example: on the page shortcuts add a 'search link' for

[[!shortcut  name=wikipediade url=""]]

and - in the source code of your blog page add:

[[!wikipedia  War_of_1812]]
