Hi
I have installed BlogEngine.Net on my local.

After adding some user when add / create blogs it creates the url like http://localhost/~YourVirtualDir~/post/PostTitle.aspx.

I want to know that how it will work on live.

like in other blogs whenever we they have a user registered and url becomes http://username.wordpress.com.

So how this thing will happen in BlogEngine.net

Please update me on this ASAP.

Thanks & Regards

hmm.. you are the driver!
- you can buy a hosting and url will be like http://mycooldomain.com or http://blog.mycooldomain.com.
- you can host it youself. that will require some knowledge
plus server, plus public IP address (and plus another IP address, which is not in the same class C-network.. if you'll be hosting dns by yourself)
- you can ask your friend for a hosting... and you URL'll be like http://www.myfriendspage.com/yourblog or http://youblog.myfriendspage.com
-....

Are you talking about URL Rewrites or actually creating individual subdomains through an automatted process? If you run blogengine with multiple authors you can filter by authors, etc.

Blogengine is not an out-of-the-box blog hosting portal, per se. It is for individual installations, which can have multiple authors.

The ~YourVirtualDir~/ is a function of the desktop workstation not being a server. When deployed to a web host the ~YourVirtualDir~/ will go away unless you configure a virtual directory on the server.

Hi Buddy,

Thanks for your reply.

I got the idea upto multi-authors , then can a user have different blogs.

If yes then how each blog will be accessible.

Suppose I wrote a blog with a title "MyFirstBlog".

then what will be the url http://MyFirstBlog.MySiteName.com or

http://MySiteName/post/MyFirstBlog.aspx.

Please confirm me on this.

Regards

I cannot say this with authority but with a little insight to the project.

I can tell you that I do not think this is going to happen in the next few releases. Mads team is putting alot of features into this release, and the next two releases. Their skills are letting us add some future scheduled features into this next release. So in some aspects we are ahead of schedule. I would take this as good sign that when the wave slows down full consideration will be given to this feature and when, if and how it should be added.

"Multiple blogs on same installation" is added as a Someday feature. Meaning, you have been heard we just need more time.

Thanks for the interest and hope this satisfies some of your questions.

I can definitely say I would be interested in using BlogEngine.net as a platform supporting multiple portals. If, and (hopefully) when this happens, I hope the developers will build in some solid migration tools to merge all blogs up to the new platform.

At this point, however, I'll continue running multiple instances of BlogEngine.net for each domain or "portal".

Thanks for all the hard work on this you guys; I am so satisfied with BlogEngine.net it hurts.
