    Installing Blog Module Link to this post

    I'm new to SS and want to try the blog module. The installation steps link on the main blog module page is broken. How do I install it?

    Hi bostonmark - welcome to the forum.

    I'll report the broken link - in the mean time you can see a simple explanation here http://www.sslearn.info/sslearn/installing-silverstripe-module-themes/.

    Basically you just put the blog folder in the root of your site directory (i.e. in the same folder as assists, cms etc...) then visit http://www.yoursite.com/dev/build which will automatically update the database.

    If you are just starting with SilverStripe I would recommend doing the written tutorials as they will give you a good base. Also it's worth noting that if your site is primarily going to be a blog then the CMS Wordpress may be more suitable - although I wouldn't say that to loudly round here ;)

    Howard, you don't have to whisper that here. ;) Silverstripe is mainly used as a tool by professional developers and we recognize that there are extremely good reasons to use Wordpress instead in some cases.
