What is the best way to use this in a web site?

Hi there,

I've downloaded 1.5 version, and tried to play it a bit. My issue is that I want to add it as a link to my personal web site, like www.mysite.com/blog. To achieve so, I copied BE into my website's root, and moved some of the sections in web.config to root folder's web.config file, updated the "~/admin" pathes to the right one with one more layer. But I still ran into issue with virtual path, and didn't find a way to solve them all in one place.

An alternative to me is to keep my existing pages and BE side by side. Then BE has it's own root configuration file and it is own relative path. By doing so, I can separate both clearly, and update them respectively in the future.

However, I couldn't use urlMapping to redirect the page to a page under other virtual path. Any idea how to make it work?

Thanks,

Hi garyzi ,

Try this.

Create the new blog folder as a new virtual directory (new app root) in your site . Something like wwwroot/blog .

Take the BE install (no changes) and simply copy it to the new blog folder .
