Seeing the trees in the forest

After numerous (3) requests to do something to help find new content vs migrated content I added a little "First Release" checkbox to Article, Blog and Project forms. 

This only affects what appears on the front page and does not change either the "Recent" page or the "Archives" page.

If you have a new first release (Not migrated or a compilation), edit your project and check the First Release box to get it back on the front page.

Just remember, it's there by request... :-)

Done for mine. However I'm not sure how this works: I didn't see how to select "new projects only" in the search, nor in the recent content list.

When I get time I'll add a "New" tab to the "Recent" page. Otherwise it only affects the front page view

I wonder if the front page exposure needs to be refined a little, so that older ports still get some presentation? For example, new additions could have their age divided by 14 (two weeks) for sort purposes, so that they remain on the front page much longer.

My two cents is this is an excellent system. My PCPT had languished at *humph*teen downloads for a couple weeks after dropping off the front page. After you implemented this change and I updated the PCPT to be First Release I have had several downloads. Much appreciated , thank you.
