@Arsalan That sounds good. I can understand it was put together fast. I am just brainstorming that I think it will be a really good feature to have for updates and site information etc.

Indonesian Arsalan Shah Replied 8 years ago

I would also like to see this updated. I think this can come in handy to keep community members informed with updates and news regarding the site.

Ravikant choudhary Replied 8 years ago

Indonesian Arsalan Shah Replied 8 years ago

Someone requested blog component, that was the main reason for the creation of this blog,

Thanks for report will fix the issue in next version.

German Claus Lampert Replied 8 years ago

I have installed and tested the component. But: I don´t unterstand the difference between a posting on the wall and a blog post? When should the user write on the wall and when to the blog?

P.S.: if someone isn´t logged in but read the blog via direct url, the blog didn´t use the correct css. Maybe this should be fixed.
