Hi I downloaded the blog module, but the README's link to documentation is broken. How do I install it? I can't find any documentation.

thanks

Put the blog folder in your installations main directory (at the same level as mysite, sapphire, assets etc), name it to blog if it isn't already.

run http://mysite.com/dev/build?flush=1

done.

Hello.

I am trying the same thing and as soon as I add the folder 'blog' into the root directory and run dev/build I get a blank screen, nothing else. Take the folder out and all back to normal.

I have the environment set to 'dev' but not getting anything back in terms of error messages.

See here on how to get something more useful than the white screen:

Thanks Mark, I'll take a look. As am interim measure I've managed to drag an old version from a previous site I'd built and all worked fine.
