Is blog4umbraco being actively developed?

Jun 24, 2011 at 12:23 PM

I'm looking for a blog package that can be added onto recent versions of Umbraco and will keep step with future developments.

Some of the date stamps suggest there has not been active development on this project for over a year - is that the case?

Is there a better alternative to blog4umbraco that you would recommend?

Hi,

Yes there is some development towards a version 3.0 release going on which is essentially a re-write.  However, in the meantime you can install the Blog 4 Umbraco package that is available through the Packages list in the developer section, then I recommend installing the Refactored Blog4Umbraco Extensions package available here: http://our.umbraco.org/projects/collaboration/refactored-blog4umbraco-extensions

I forgot to mention - you will likely want to fix the default XSLT files - there are quite a few discussions kicking around our.umbraco.org forums on this, and also on my blog.  e.g. http://refactored.com.au/blog/2010/10/19/altering-xslt-files-for-blog-categories-with-tags/
