I re-arranged LatestNews() from Tutorial 2 to work with the Blog Module. However, links are not displayed properly on the home page. They look instead like SilverStripe links [the page name/].

How can this be corrected?

Don't use $Content.FirstParagraph, use the full content. Interesting, why does $Content.FirstParagraph produce these strange link forms?

FirstParagraph returns just the text, not html.

Is there a way to transform the text from $FirstParagraph to HTML?

There was a dodgy song: take two steps forward and one step back from the eighties. Anyone remember it? SilverStripe really brings it to mind :)

LatestNews with the blog module will call ALL children, whether published or not. How can I limit the children being called to those that are published?

It shouldn't do... Perhaps you are viewing the draft site?

Put $SilverStripeNavigator just before your <body> tag. This will give CMS authors a toolbar that indicates whether you're viewing the draft or published site.
