Widgets in BE 2.0

Jan 11, 2011 at 9:14 PM

Hi !


Hi finally got BE 2.0 installed with MS SQL on a ASP.NET 4.0. Are there any changes regarding adding custom widgets? I tried to add Silverlight Tag Cloud ( I can see the widget in my dropdown list but when I click on "add" nothing happens.


Any hints?

Thx & regards

I think I finally solved the issue. I had to import some namespaces otherwise the widget can't be added although the namespace is not needed in code.

Widgets I had to modify:

Last.FM and 3D Silverlight Tag Cloud


using App_Code.Controls;
using BlogEngine.Core;
using BlogEngine.Core.Providers;



using App_Code.Controls;
using BlogEngine.Core;

I modified my widget.ascx.cs file with using App_Code.Controls; but all I got was the silverlight loading screen with the blue circle loading screen. It says it's loaded 100% but nothing further shows. Any idea on how to load it? I downloaded it and it did not have an edit.ascx.cs file. Any ideas. I can't read the guys website because it's not in english. Anyone know what language it's in so it can be translated?

You can let Google auto-detect the language to translate from.  Try this link:

Hi jakkjakk,


I posted the widget on my blog Let me know if you have any problems on BE 2.0. This widget has no edit file because it works without any configuration.
