The articles plugin provides a simple way for NanoBlogger to automatically generate and update articles for your weblog. Creating a new article is easy, create a new file in the articles directory and save it with the suffix, "txt". To remove an article simply rename it's suffix to something other than "txt" or remove it from the articles directory. Edit templates/main_links.htm to add new links. FILES
