This package implements all modules for basic blogging services. You can define blog categories, which are the main mechanism to group your blog topics. Each individual blog entry is part of one blog category.
Make sure valid Urls are defined in the settings for the Blog Settings Module. Blog Main Url and Blog Entry Url must be defined as these are used to display your blog categories and blog entries to site visitors.
Visitors can optionally leave comments for blog entries.
Individual blog categories can optionally be defined as news feeds (RSS).
Use the YetaWF_Blog Site Template to create all pages necessary for your Blog. The main blog page is /Blog. Individual blog entries are displayed at /BlogEntry. In addition, several pages are added below /Admin. See the YetaWF_Blog Site Template YetaWF_Blog.txt file for details.
Use the Blog Module as the main entry point on a page for your site visitors. Add a Categories List Module to the same page where the Blog Module is located to allow the user to select blog categories. Also add a Category Header Module to display information for the selected category. If no category is selected, the Category Header Module is automatically hidden.
