BlogEngine 3.2 - less features

Topics: Controls

I use BlogEngine for many years. My "production" blog is based on now. Yesterday I downloaded the latest source code from GitHub and evaluated it. My personal problem is that I use two blogs, ie. multiblog configuration. Primary is single-user based, secondary is multiuser based. I understand the reasons why 3 supported configurations have been chosen so I will have to configure an additional website for the secondary blog. That's no problem.
What I would like to ask RTUR is:
  • are there plans to support BreakPost and SendCommentMail extensions in BE.NET 3.2+?
  • are there plans to support BlogRoll and Month list widgets in BE.NET 3.2+?
    If yes, what is the ETA?
Thanks for your hard work.

There was no changes to extensions in 3.2, they should work as usual - except they used to be deployed as code and since 3.0 compiled into BlogEngine.NET.dll. Should not effect any functionality.

Yes, widgets re-build from user controls into .cshtml pages. BlogRoll and Month list both will be added soon (currently working on Link list). Will take few more weeks to release.

Indeed, I started Visual Studio today, started debugging and my test article was processed correctly with [more]. Thanks for fast reply. Looking forward for the widgets. Now it makes more sense to prepare the upgrade, including blogs split into multiple FQDNs.
