I'm new to using this blog module, is there a user manual or guide somewhere to get me started? An employee who is no longer here started this blog.

First question I came across - in testing, I added a comment as a test user, and it said it had to be approved by an admin. I'm wondering if there are notifications / where they are sent to so the admin knows to go look and moderate.

You found resources on and have also links to the Manuals.

Although that manual is based on 7.0.6 Project Manuals - the Blog portion has nothing to do with the version of the Blog module that actually works with 7.0.6.  It relates to the pre-7 DNN.

Its strange that even though the manual obviously came-out for version 7 of DNN - they don't bother mentioning that the Blog as in the manual is not really available and works in a completely different way.

Just FYI...

Yes there are manuals, but they are each for different versions. I expect the version you are using is 4.1.1 or there abouts. The manual for that version of the blog module is online:

Here is the online manual that shows you how to manage the Blog module (version 4.1.1):


The navigation is on the left. I suggest you start by looking at the section called “Laying out the Blog Modules” (there are several sub-modules):

The newly released Version 6.0 of the blog module came out on Monday of this week, so you probably don't have that. It is available at:

And the manual for Version 6 is at:

 Regarding admins getting notified, yes that is an option you can set up if you are an admin.
