    Blog module Link to this post

    Hi,
    I see you have just released the 'news' module. Do you plan to release the 'blog' module soon as well, i.e. in next few weeks? I have just started to make my own simple blog. But I would rather use some existing SS blog module.

    If you follow the second tutorial your pretty much half way to a blog .

    Ingo I believe did work on a blogging module but I dont think it has been worked on or finished in a while so I wouldnt expect it in the next few weeks, I think there is a bit more coding then testing etc to do.

    Features that the blogging module will have (or features we have talked about) include the BlogHolder, BlogEntries (similar to the tutorials) but also the ability to tag posts and have a 'Tag Cloud' and a more sophisticated browsing/search function for the archives eg organizing posts by date and tag etc. Commenting is already a standard SS feature.

    Other personal things I am working on are a Flickr plugin for SS so that might be useful for a blog also something like a blogroll (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blogroll) that can be edited via the CMS would be neat.

    FYI. The very observant (and possibly obsessive) will have noticed the blog module appearing in our open-source repository recently. You can have a play using subversion;

    #make a fresh install of SilverStripe from Subversion
    svn co svn://open.silverstripe.com/silverstripe/open/phpinstaller/trunk ss
    # now visit the webpage and install it

    #install the blog module
    svn co svn://svn.silverstripe.com/silverstripe/open/modules/blog/trunk blog
    # now visit the webpage and run a "db/build"...

    I'll put some screenshots up on our homepage shortly !

    Have a play around, give us feedback. We'll be releasing this later into September, and I'll make a more vocal announcement then.

    Hi Stéphane,

    Are you using SilverStripe 2.0.2, or a version older than 2.1 RC1? If you are, then you're missing is the latest core files that the blog module requires. They can be found in the newest SS 2.1 RC1 release, found here:

    http://www.silverstripe.com/assets/rc/silverstripe-v2.1.0-rc1.tar.gz

    You should be able to delete the jsparty, cms and sapphire directories in your project, and overwrite with the ones from the above download. Please also ensure you run db/build?flush=1 after upgrading, to ensure all files are flushed and the database manifest is all correct.

    Also, if you discover any problems with RC1 (as it's not fully flagged as stable yet) you can post your findings into this thread here:

    http://www.silverstripe.com/general-discussion/flat/5050

    Hope this helps!
