Re: [Orgmode] exporting - filtering

I do like the idea of a tag for selecting the subtrees that should be exported. I will not have time to implement this before september. However, if someone wants to try: `org-export-preprocess-hook' runs in a temporary buffer containing the document to export. You could use org-map-entry to iterate over the trees in that buffer and kill those that do not have the tag......

When publishing/exporting can I limit certain sections to only exported if they are tagged for export? e.g I have a normal org mode hierarchy for my web page but then import a task based org file and then only have some of those published? If not I think it would be nice addition some
time in the future.

That sounds like a neat idea. You can always open a portion of the
tree in another window ( C-c C-x b ) and then hit export, I do that
all the time.

I do think it would be interesting if a property could modify whether
or not to include an item (or its children) in export.


The main reason of course is to filter out the dross from pages of tasks
and notes.

Something like a property on #include which specifies the tag to INCLUDE
in the export.


#+import "~/orgfiles/tasks.org" includetag:export-web recursive:no

or somesuch.

Maybe simpler are properties on the top of a org file of the form

#+export-tag: export-web

Since #import currently does not check for a timestamp it tends not to
get republished unless the parent file is changed. So a top property
might be better so any "lists" imported from ones tasks is really a link
click away (normal org link).

I dont know how practical these ideas are but maybe they can start the
ball rolling or prompt someone to suggest an existing method? Having to manually open a tree portion and exporting it isnt really practical when using
project publishing.
