May the 4th be with you again - presenting the DNN Blog App

We are proud to announce (again on international star-wars day) the Blog App. It's pretty cool, and the best thing is that you can mix it with other apps, or just change it to be anything you want. This post you're reading is also made with the Blog App.

        And way more. Just so you know: this blog app demonstrates many of the features of 2sxc content management, so we'll write about it a lot in our own blog (which of course is made with this blog).

        2. Posts about this blog and about blogging

        Some Setup-Tips

        In general the blog-app is self-contained - so if you put it on some page, it will automatically show a list of items with links to the details, and the details appear on the same page. Very simple. If you want to use the tag-cloud, then that should know what page to link to, since the cloud will usually not be on the same page as the blog itself. in that case you can set the main link in the app settings.


          Hope you love it, just try it (requires 2sxc 8.4.4).

          May the force be with you,

          Daniel Mettler learned programming with the bible translation computer of his parents, deep in the jungles of Indonesia. Since he was only 12 years old at that time and the BIOS only had a version of BASICA, that's what got him started. With 16 he went back to Switzerland and learned German and basic city-survival skills. Equipped with this know-how he founded 2sic internet solutions in 1999 which was focused on web solutions on the Microsoft platform. After a few self-developed CMSs 2sic switched to DNN in 2003 and has been one of the largest partners (17 employees, 700+ projects) in Europe. Daniel is also the chief architect behind the open source 2sxc, a strong promoter of standardization (boostrap, patterns, AngularJS, checklists, etc.) and loves to eat anything - dead or alive. His motto: if the natives eat it, it game.
