    Installation Link to this post

    OK, so the docs linked to from the module page no longer exist; the docs linked to in the readme have a different URL, but also no longer exist, so I'm going on the tiny hint of instruction offered here:
    http://doc.silverstripe.org/sapphire/en/topics/modules

    So, I copied the folder into my SilverStripe root folder, renamed it 'blog', and then ran ?flush=1...but I'm finding no signs that the blog has been installed anywhere on my site. Certainly not on the main page, and in the admin page when I go to create a new page, there are no blog options like on the demo page. And I checked the folder permissions, the server should have full access to the blog folder. Any suggestions?

    Running /dev/build (e.g. http://yoursite.com/dev/build) should make the necessary updates to the database.

    Are you looking at the backend or the frontend for changes? In the backend you need to create a new page with a type of blog holder.

    You could try /dev/build?flush=all

    Installing modules like this has always worked for me so you may want to look a bit closer at your setup if that doesn't work. Try another module for a test and see what happens.

    I seem to remember that some modules (e.g. Data Object Manager) require that the directory be named a particular way (e.g. dataobject_manager rather than dom or something else) but I don't think this is the case with the blog module.
