So we try to find alternative instead of WYSIWYG Editor, a quicker, more efficient way to publish web texts.

  2. Go to where it says PublishDate on the bottom of the Options section and adjust the time/date to reflect when you would like your post to be published. You will want to verify that your blog’s time is set up correctly to ensure the post appears when you want it to.
  3. Click "Save & Publish" action button to publish the post.
  4. The post will now appear in the Manage posts panel, but will not show on your site until the designated date/time. Yes, if you configure it into the past, it will post right away and show the designated date/time.

Attractive Comment Form for DNN Blog

As you know, the comment is so important to any blog platform that you may have to build an attractive comments form that users will enjoy filling out. Usually forms are pretty classic with standard fields, submit buttons - nothing more, nothing less.
