BLOG EXTENSION Full fledged-UPDATE 21/01/2011

Post by me.prosenjeet » Fri Feb 27, 2009 7:15 pm

I have been reading quite a few comments asking for a full fledged blog in webbuilder.
This extension will help you install a blog, which has many features, on your website-

Some of the important features-
# You can add any number of Articles
# Your visitors can rate your articles (star rating)
# Your visitors can leave their comments
# Achieves
# Search on Blog
# Calendar
# Simple Installation.
# You can edit the header as well as the footer image to match your site. CSS can also be edited but venture into it only if you are sure of what you are doing!
# No less than Wordpress

Download:
Visit http://lucknowwebs.com/blog-extension and look for "Download Extensions"Link

UPDATE 21/01/2011
Extension has been updated with Extension builder 2.6.1
Now compatable with WB7x



UPDATE 14/11/2009

Detailed install explanation added...read on:
Ok, for the benefit of all I explain the whole process again.....please bear with me..it may be irritating :lol:

(1)
Copy the blog.wbx in the install folder

(2)
Open WB and drag the extension on your page where you want the link to your blog to appear...example on your home page "goto my blog"

(3)
Goto the settings of the extension and set the colour of the link etc.

(4)
"Link of Blog" this is important.
This is the link to your blog folder that will be created. YOU NEED NOT CREATE THE FOLDER CALLED BLOG, IT WILL BE CREATED ON ITS OWN. For example if your main site is http://www.mysite.com then just put the link there "www.mysite.com/blog". Ensure this is correct path

(5)
Upload the page as "upload all".

(6)
After full upload, visit the page on which the extension was placed.

(7)
Click on "Goto my Blog" on that page

(8 )
You will be taken to the Blog installation....
Choose the language and click on "Submit"

(9)
Next page click on "Begin Setup"

(10)
Follow the steps...it is self explianatory

(11)
You will reach the "Create username & password" Do that

(12)
Next page will be "Create password file"
See the screenshot:
Image
This I have already explained in the pdf

(13)
Once you have done the above step (12) click on "continue"

(14)
You will be sent to the login page...login with the login/pass you had selected earlier

(15)
You will reach the "Login Congratulations!" page.
Click on "Setup" on this page

(16)
Now make all the changes in the "Setup" page and click on "Submit"

(17)
YOU ARE DONE!!

I cant explain this better :lol:

I have to agree with itsanogo. what does your extension do? It simply is a link to a blog that you need to setup and configure.

See, webbuilder is a web designing software for those who have little knowledge about installing of scripts like blogs/cms/forums..this is the reason extensions like the official 'blog' and 'news writer' were introduced. What this script is doing , it is simplifying the initial few steps and allowing the user to handle the blog directly from his site. You may be surprised, the file has been downloaded 62 times since I made the post(about 24hrs back)....and these people wouldn't have downloaded if they had known how to install and run a blog on their site(there is one more reason I have used a blog that doesnt require SQL data base).

Code: Select all

This extension isnt just creating a link to the blog on your page...but is uploading the whole blog to a predefined folder so there is easy install and use....the link has been made to be customizable so that it can be matched with the other links/menu of your main web pages.
This extension is just to simplify the process. Blogs/cms/forums needs installation from server side, which sometimes causes troubles of various kind, and no extension can install it for you...I am trying to make the initial steps simple. :roll:

Not True

Most people download the extension to see what it does, so out of the 62 you can count me out making it 61 I know how to create Blogs, CMS and so on.

Good Extension, but I dont think most users that do not know how to edit CSS or PHP could use this extension. I do like the way it simplifies the process and a good start at the blog.

If you can ReCreate the Extension, And I tell you I could not create even one, to be able to have the Header Picture, Footer, Colors and so on. So that novice users can change items within the extension itself, would be great.

Keep up turning out the extensions, Great so far! Looking forward to more extensions from you!

Your Blog extention is just great...........so easy to use

What about a "photo bucket" type extention?

I have been looking at many "Scripts" and they all seem hard to install
you have to use "MySQL" and many other things in order for users to
have there own accounts and gallerys and catagories....... :cry:

I have installed a forum on my site but I dont like it either because
of the difficulty in managing and trying to make it look like my site.....

I would like to have a "Forum" & Photo Bucket" match my site Color, logo and so on.

Just like your "Blog" extention I was able to make it look like my site
& so easy to install.............

OH.....if I send you my background & Truck pic from my site could you make a theame for me?

Best Regards V8

I will look for a free forum/Photo script that matches the need of all and try to make an extension. If you are aware of any such script do let me know.
The template you are asking for, do you need it for Joomla or Wordpress? For webbuilder, your template is excellent.

Not sure what you meen?..................."Joomla or Wordpress"

I would like the blog to have the same border and Truck & maybe the flash as on the top and sides of my site highwaytrucker.com

Is this posible?
Thank you again for all you do
