Neo Add-ons - Peekaboo posts etc

I have come up with some add-ons/modifications to Neo based on the requests from those who bought Neo.

1. Peekaboo posts - Yes, it is now possible to use peekaboo posts with Neo i.e. even asynchronous posts will have peekaboo functionality ('Read more' link). This makes sense if your posts are long enough that you would like to shorten even if there's only one post in the page.

2. It is possible to show comments in the usual oldest to newest order. If you prefer it that way, I can make it work.

3. If you are using Phydeaux3's label cloud, you can load the list of posts Neo style when you click on a label. It just requires one line change.

4. You can limit the number of recent posts and/or number of posts per label.

In short, Neo's feature list has increased!

I like the speed of NEO, like the way pages load and would really like to enjoy the benefits. I've been with you since the beginning but I prefer a stretch template and prefer a different layout. Would I be able to modify it enough to keep some of my other hacks, use the whole screen and get rid of the outlines?

Or do I have to really learn to code instad of cut and paste?

After playing with the template, I still can't find where to adjust how many posts are listed. I would like to restrict it to ten or the previous three days.

I'm also having trouble getting rid of one last gray line.

yes you can. just apply the hack and do the change described in this neo faq.

Your link doesn't seem to work. can you send the correct URL. If you are using phydeaux3's label cloud, you can easily change it to work Neo way. Answer is in neo faq.

If you mean the blog should reposition itself to the appropriate place, you can do it with some javascript. specifically, the scrollIntoView() call.

Neo already has the peekaboo code in it.Just divide your posts into summary and fullpost as described in step 3 of this post.
