I've installed the blog plugin following the instructions by installing to a subdir ("blog") and running the flush - which acc. to output updated the system database. Next questions is quite lame:

What now?

Well, evidently I'd like to begin tweaking - or simply access the plugin to try it out admin-wise, but it's nowhere to be found in the admin GUI I thought it would show up in the content/pagetype options...

Where am I to go from here...? Thanks!!

A new site should be shown both on your site and in the CMS.

Ar you sure that you installed the blog in the right folder an have run http://yoursite/db/build?flush=1 ??

hi wojtek... and thanks for responding.

That's what I assumed - I tried rebuilding once more by flushing again. Same output and same result - no new pages neither in the front nor in the backend in spite of output that suggest something else. I've attatched a dump up the flush output.

Dunno... just plain nothing. Damn, I'm really fumbling in the dark here! Grrr....frustrating!

Where did you put the blog folder?

The structure of the blog package is something like blog 0.5.1/blog/all_the_files
You should have blog/all_the_files on your site, without blog 0.5.1 (or any other version number it is)

Thanks for helping out guys - and sorry for late response but was seeing double so simply had to hit the sheets.

Seems sleep was the missing ingredient, as I this morning turned to take another look at the folder structure I had placed the files in a dir: www.mydomain.com/blog/blog - logically (nooot!).
I moved to files upward to the correct folder www.mydomain.com/blog and made a reflush (www.mydomain.com/db/build?flush=1) and; vupti - as I login to the CMS backend Inow have the blogentry and blogpost options when creating a new page...

As you can tell I'm not that much of a techie, so thank you so much for pointing me in the right direction guys - I guess the forest is simply clouded by trees sometimes...! :-)
