A few questions for a newbie...

Hi Everybody

Having never used the blogEngine I have a few hopefully simple questions for some kind soul to answer :)

I have installed the system as a .NET Visual Studio project and have run it up and all appears to work very well without looking into too much detail.  How is the data stored, does the system use XML files, SQL Server etc?  I have seen some posts to do with SQL Server so assume the facility is there, but never saw anything in the documentation with regards DB setup etc.??

Can you use the blogEngine in a componentised form to say just display the bloggs within an already established site?

If anyone has some useful links that they can point me in the direction with regards my questions above that would be great :)

Thanks in advance

Andy

BE uses XML as the default but can use several databases, see intructions in the setup folder.
