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. But still even little change of field background, border style, layout, rounded corners can make huge difference. Sometimes adding live comment preview, smiles or some simple CSS bold, italic, underline effects to give more options to advanced comment writers, such as Markdown may be a good choice to satisfy these requirements. Today I would like to share you how we redesign our own comment form. If you indeed want to really stand out and create something super in your comment form, please do your own research and considerations, what you like/dislike and why it is so. Ok, let's go ahead.

Publish DNN Blog Posts with Office Word 2010 & 2007

microsoft-wordThis post was summarized with the original forum post "Post Blog Entries from Office 2010".

As you know, our dnn blogging module – SunBlogNuke supports the remote 3rd-party publishing tool, in other words, you can use a third-party Desktop/Mobile application for your dnn blog which we call it “Remote Posting”. Microsoft Office 2010 is one of remote Posting app with just a few simple steps. It indeed makes publishing a blog post so easy that you might just be in total amazement. Please refer to the tutorial for more instruction - How To Create and Publish Blog Posts in Word 2010 & 2007. And some following notes you should know:

1) Connecting SunBlogNuke with Microsoft Office 2010/2007, you need to fill in the "Blog Post Url" with the link "http://www.domain.com/DesktopModules/SunBlog/MetaWeblog.ashx". Just replace "domain" with your real domain name.
2) Unfortunately, Microsoft Word still doesn’t let you add things like tags, custom fields, SEO options, etc; so it is probably a good idea to choose the Publish As Draft option so that you can add those things and then publish from your blog.

In the end, we would like to let you know that actually we prefer to use Window Live Writer as remote publishing tool and it supplies more flexible features :)
