We bought several other Blog Modules, and found SunBlog to be not only the most powerful, but it has the best integration into Windows Live Writer. Their support is great also.

SunBlogNuke v3.0 Released

I am pleased to announce that SunBlogNuke 3.0.0 has been released.  SunBlogNuke 3.0.0 is a monthly stabilization release and includes a number of fixes aimed at improving the overall stability and flexibility of the platform. Over the last year we have been undergoing a lot of efforts behind the scenes in how we manage the DotNetNuke release process so that our releases are becoming more predictable and with greater emphasis on testing.  This particular release reflects those process improvements. As usual, the complete details for all of the changes can be found in the Release Notes.

Major Highlights

  • Enhanced the thumbnail feature.
  • Extended the featured widget module by adding random view mode and [ENTRY] token with which you do some more customizations, like showing random testimonial described in that post Showcase your testimonials with featured widget.
  • Supported profile feature and you can show author’s profile in the bottom of every post as WordPress.
  • Added the ability to specify the maximum number of related posts rendered in every post view mode.
  • SEO optimization in category view
  • Implemented separate archive feature with all the posts categorized by month.
  • Enhanced Tag cloud module in the sidebar with supporting common and flash mode (known as "TagCumulus").
  • Added the ability to customize post time with Formatting Date Time with suffix like 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th.
  • Fixed issue where blog user table was related with the core user data and caused problems when deleting any portal with any blog instance.
  • Fixed issue that "description can not be null." when trying to retrieve the Rss Feed.
  • Supported the author avatar showed in the recent posts list and single post view, which is default demonstrated in the [RoyalYellow] theme.
  • Cleaned up the database script and removed some unnecessary stored procedures.
  • Updated the CookComputing.XmlRpc dll and fixed the conflict between modules, like Metapost module.
  • Made it compatible with more old dnn version and now you can apply it DNN4.6.x and later version, including latest DNN v5.2..2.
  • Other fixes and more customizations.

As with any release, we recommend you perform a complete file and database backup before performing any upgrade on a production website and that you first conduct a trial upgrade on a staging version of the site. Following these guidelines will ensure that you are able to recover should any unforeseen problems arise during the upgrade process.

You can get it here. Enjoy blogging and good writing! :)

[Kudos] SunBlogNuke brings WordPress-level blogging capabilities to DotNetNuke

SunBlogNuke brings WordPress-level blogging capabilities to DotNetNuke. I have only found one feature missing that I felt was important, and the developer added it practically overnight. I even have my blog integrated with several of third-party services via the MetaWeblog API. If you need a blog on your DNN site in a flash and the core module doesn't give you just what you need, then buy SunBlogNuke!
