Primary articles?

I'm guessing theres already a good way to do this, but I haven't found it yet. Is there a good way to create primary articles for subjects, like for storing a character's stats, backstory, and the like? I'd want a good way to find it quickly for a given character or location, like if i could tag the entry to sort first for the character when I pull up the character. It looks like i can use the ordering buttons to move the order of the entries around, but I wasn't sure if the new order was permanent.

I'm thinking about storing it off site, eg in scabard or obsidian portal and linking it in, but I was curious if folks found any good way to do that entirely from within campaign logger.

Also, I'd like to be able to link to other characters and the like in this primary article, but not have the article show up in the other character's page... E.g. If PC @Thrae'rekk stole @Merelda's !"Cursed Wand", I'd have one entry that says just that, but i might want to have the inventory section for Thrae'rekk mention the wand, linking to the !"Cursed Wand", but i don't want Thrae'rekk's article to show up on the wand's log index. Is this unreasonable or possible?

I hope that request makes sense. How do folks handle this in their campaigns?

Hey @cparen! Not yet. That's going to be a feature hopefully rolled out with the upcoming Campaigning feature set @JochenL is building. We're calling it a Core Entry.

Sort is not permanent, it's just for current session/screen setting only. A refresh will reset sort.

All mentions of a tag will show up when you search, filter, or list it. It's the core nature of the app, and I can't think of a way around it atm.

Yeah, I suspected as much. I understand what you mean by "core nature of the app", I appreciate doing one thing *really* well. I tried CL out durring session for the first time Thursday, and it already let me do something new - a player came up with a cool idea for something new for their character and I was able to punch in a new rule for them instantly, and trivially find it again because i can tag their character in the rule. I cant tell you how many times in the past our game ground to a halt trying to find a roll20 handout. So yeah, I can definitely appreciate that core nature. :)

Core Entry sounds perfect! Looking forward to it.

Hello, new user here! Just wanted to see if this feature was still coming along. It seems like something that would elevate CL into new levels of greatness.

Yes! it definitely is. We're developing some alpha functionality and I see things coming together.

No ETA yet, but it's still our primary focus.

Fantastic, thanks for the swift replies! I'm happy it's being worked on. Can't wait to move my notes over from OneNote. :)
