Getting started

To create a new blog use the System.WebCreateNewWeb tool and select the _BlogTemplate template. This will create a new web by copying the content of the _BlogTemplate web into the new target web.

Now check the WebPreferences of this newly created web and review its settings, i.e. the access rights for the web.

Make sure you add a nice description of your blog in the WEBSUMMARY preference setting.

Create a new posting by clicking on BlogEntries on the sidebar. This will list all existing blog entries, as well as a form to create a new one.

Note that your posting will not be publicly visible unless you switched its State property to published.

Plugin Installation Instructions

You do not need to install anything in the browser to use this extension. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the extension on the server.

Open configure, and open the "Extensions" section. Use "Find More Extensions" to get a list of available extensions. Select "Install".

If you have any problems, or if the extension isn't available in configure, then you can still install manually from the command-line. See http://foswiki.org/Support/ManuallyInstallingExtensions for more help.
