New Sitecore 6 blog module released

Published on November 6, 2009

In the last couple of months I have been working on a new blog module for Sitecore 6.2. It started as a small module just for my own educational purpose but ended up as one of the largest modules I created. The module is a complete rewritten blog module, based upon the functionality of the old 5.3 version. The new version supports inline editing, fieldeditors, webcontrols for custom themes and Windows Live Writer integration. This release includes two sample blogs. One with a standard theme and one custom theme which shows you how to use the custom webcontrols.

List of features

  • Windows Live Writer integration (MetaWeblog API)
  • Full frontend (inline) editing
  • Webedit ribbon (with fieldeditors)
  • CSS based themes
  • Custom themes possible (one demo included)
  • Custom webcontrols (with inline editing)
  • Comments
  • Tagging and a tagcloud
  • RSS Feeds

At this moment the module in still in betá, and I would like to hear your feedback. You can use the comments or just send me a email (mark at When you encounter problems, found a bug or have any other kind of feedback please let me know and I will try to reply as soon as possible.

You can find the installation package and sources on the Shared Source environment.
