A Blog for Plone

Latest Version: 1.8.0

Overview provides a blog implementation for Plone featuring tags and categories.

A user can add a new blog entry and tag it using tags and categories. Available categories are defined by the creator of the blog, whilst tags can be added freely by the author of a blog entry.

Blog entries are listed in chronological order, in a tag cloud, by categories, and in a monthly archive. Entries can be searched by using the search function of the blog.

Optionally, blog entries can be commented by users using Plone’s commenting functionality.
