Blog 03.04.00 Officially Released!

Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to inform you that the Blog has officially been released and packages have been posted in the the Downloads area.

Here are the release notes:

BLG-6299 Blog module: Updating comments
Button now says Update when updating the comment.

BLG-4501 Blog module: search button size
Removed fixed button size, and moved it down one row. Search text can now span across without affecting the layout.

BLG-5307 Blogs - Can't open article in new browser window
Changes link from PostBack to GET. Users can now open link in new windows.

BLG-6296 Blog module: Add CSS Styles to Calendar in Blog Archive
The blog calendar is now fully skinnable. To modify the default design, simply
modify the Module.css file found in the blog folder.

BLG-5813 Blog module: Cancel new entry = ModuleLoadException
Fixed so that this no longer happens when editing/adding blog entries.

BLG-6722 Blogs module: FCK Editor on comments.
Althought we have not added the the Rich Text Editor for security reasons,
we have satisfied the latter part of this request to increased the size of the comment textbox.

BLG-3787 htmlencode trackback emails
Added defensive programming methods to help preventing issues if they do indeed exist.

BLG-6126 Make Blog Module Title Editable
Container title is now editable. The Blog title was moved to a label by itself in
the body of the module with an h2 element which satisfies SEO practices.

BLG-5603 Blog module: Use H1 (or H2) tags instead of "Head" Class
Converted entire blog Entry view to CSS layout following the guidelines in this ticket.

BLG-4471 trackback titles not correctly encoded
Modified the codebase to ensure that title and description in the generated XML are
encapsulated between [CDATA[]] fields.

BLG-4034 able to read one blog entry from another blog by altering querystringfrom another portals
The portalid was never taken in cosideration when firing the queries to the database.
This issue has been rectified, and blog entries are now pulled with the portalid in context.

BLG-3754 File Uploads
Removed the blog specific upload function. The module will now use the FCK Editor's
upload functionality.

BLG-3566 FB-206: Blog - Missing tool tip help
Following careful review we decided not to address this item as described. The current blog does in fact provide HELP text next to each field. While it does not make use of the DNN LABEL control, it does provide the user with the adequate information. Furthermore, keeping in mind the fact that we will be re-developing the blog module from the ground up very soon we decided to focus on bugs with a higher priority instead.

BLG-4888 Edit old blog item changes time -1
Revised all issues related to date time and timezone issues. Refactored all the
routines involved and verified to be working correctly based on time zone selection.
Please note that this does NOT fix previously posted entries.

BLG-5949 Date & Time Issue on Blog Entries
Revised all issues related to date time and timezone issues. Refactored all the
routines involved and verified to be working correctly based on time zone selection.
Please note that this does NOT fix previously posted entries.

BLG-6121: Add Edit Entry Link Wherever an entry is displayed
In previous versions the Edit Entry action link was only found when navigating down
to the entry detail page. We have now added this action link on everywhere a blog
entry is displayed and shown only to blog owners.

BLG-5425 Unnecessary creation of Folders in Portal/PortalID/Blog/Files
Everytime a blog entry was made, a folder structure was created under the
portal's folder irrespective of whether an image/file was added or not. These
folders are now create ONLY if a file is uploaded.

BLG-4154 Blog Module : Archive Calendar Not Working Properly
Calendaring filters were not running the proper queries. This has been fixed to
enable proper filtering by a specific day or month.

BLG-3972 comments not showing fullname correctly
Setting is available in Blog Settings page to pick whether to show username or
fullname in comments and blog posts.
gs with a higher priority instead.

BLG-4888 Edit old blog item changes time -1
Revised all issues related to date time and timezone issues. Refactored all the
routines involved and verified to be working correctly based on time zone selection.
