I installed the blog module, but for some reason front end entry posts were not working, So I decided to remove and reinstall the blog.
So, I deleted the blog folder, went through the database and removed all "blog" related tables, and that seemed to work, I don't see any "blog" page in my panel's site tree. However, if I visit mysite.com/blog, I see a blank page with the title "Blog" and the following text: "Generated with the default ContentController.ss template", and after reinstalling the blog module, the mentioned page becomes a working blog page, but it is empty, and I can not edit it. Also, if I create a new blog holder page and name it blog, SS automatically renames it to blog-2.
So, what am I doing wrong? how can I completely remove my old blog and make a fresh install?
Any help will be appreciated =)

Removing just the code doesn't remove the pages from the CMS. Neither does removing the BlogEntry page tables since the blog entries extend over the 'SiteTree', 'SiteTree_Live' and 'Page' tables as well.
Your best bet is to fix this in the database by deleting any records from the SiteTree and SiteTree_Live tables which have to do with your blog.

Again, I aprecciate your quick reply, Will =)
It looked like I hadn't deleted all blog related tables.
I have managed to reinstall the module!
Now, I know I can set the blog to only be visible for logged in users. But what I want is to make it visible for anyone, and require users to log in if they want to comment on my entries. Is this possible?

Yes you can set comments to be logged in only. In < 3.0 releases you can use..
And you can optionally set a permission level for comments using set_comments_require_permission().

Great! thanks Willr!
Now I still have the same problem I had in the first place with posting entries via Blog Manager on the front end. I guess for now I can live with posting through the admin panel. But I would like to fix this =/
