Displaying the most recent Journal entry in TiddlyWiki

I’ve been using a Pinned tag as a way to keep my latest Journal entry visible in the story list. It works, but requires that I add the tag to each new Journal entry and delete the tag from prior entries.

I created a new Most Recent Journal” tiddler and added the following as its text:

<$list filter="[tag[Journal]sort[created]last[]]">
<h2>Journal for <$view field="created" format="date" template="DDD DDth MMM YYYY"/></h2>
<$transclude  mode="block"/>


That’s way better. The new tiddler will always show (transclude) the correct Journal entry without me doing anything special. Here’s what it looks like.
