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> <$transclude mode="block"/> <small><$link>Open</$link></small> </$list>
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.
