I've always had a high opinion of BlogEngine.NET since it was first created. Awesome blogging software, and it's also an awesome resource to learn how to implement some cool functionality within an ASP.NET web application.

Smooth installation, deployed on files and MySQL without any (major) hitch (check development.tobiasopdenbrouw.nl if you need an update on the mysql install script). Good themes. Language support. Tedka's comment below is not true for me - works like a charm.

Amazing blog engine that can run with XML files, or databases. The setup is a breeze, and it has many features you would only expect in a commercial project.

I took 10 minutes to put this solution to work. Need I say more?

BlogEngine.Core.dll in web download is no good. Need to use one from the source download.

The greatest open-source project... Million thanks...

A well designed piece of work. A generous contribution.

Excellent open-source project.

The best blogs engine for .NET!

I'm new to blogs, but I have found this to be very easy to implement and the people supporting it are very nice!

I am not even going to read previous reviews / comments. This is by far one of the nicest open source pieces of software I've come across so far. The extension manager is awesome and it is well prepared for custom theming.
Opening up the solution in Visual Studio 2008 SP1 tells me that the guys working on BlogEngine.NET clearly knows what they are doing and I love the XmlProvider!!

Great app. Love the full feature set! No doubt one of the best .NET OSS blogs out. For all those who complain about it not integrating into their existing site... c'mon. With a little effort you can do it. The first time I did it, took about an hour or two counting the learning process. On subsequent attempts, it's about a one minute process. 5 stars frome me....

Hugely pleased with this software. It plays very nicely with my shared hosting (using the default XML storage), and Windows Live Writer detected all settings and works superbly with it. Highly recommended, especially with the recently-released themes pack.

I absolutely love this blogging platform. I used it on my blog at http://blog.geekeleet.com, however I recently switched to WordPress when my site moved to http://www.geekeleet.com . The change in no way affects my opinion of BlogEngine.NET. I would still highly recommend this blog engine and think that the team has done a great job delivering it. Keep up the great work guys

I use it for everyday blogging as well as other things. It's really flexible and setup takes less than a minute. Theming is a breeze also. I'd recommend it to a bright 7 year old that understands IIS.
Admittedly, I'm biased though, I love this engine.

While a decent engine in and of itself as a stand-alone application, it is not one that can be easily added to an existing web site. So, unless you are really just looking for your own Blog Engine to stylize and host, this product lacks much use.
on Jan 14, 2009 at 4:06 PM
As a stand alone website 3.5 stars.
As add in for existing website .41 stars.

i use it for everyday blogging. :)

Thank you for the excellent blogging software.
Tried Wordpress first but was unable to set permissions to post images...I then searched for a .net blogging app and found BlogEngine.
The 1.4.5 (web) download, I found slow and had some issues...like not working with the theme pack that was just posted on Dec 12.
Downloaded the recent Source code and recompiled and now my blog loads much faster.
on Dec 20, 2008 at 5:31 PM
Works great. Awesome features.
on Dec 18, 2008 at 2:12 PM
now I have to upgrade from 1.2 ( January 2008 version)
where should I look for some help?

I was using wordpress before, tried BlogEngine.net recently, really great job, very happy to see developments like this in Microsoft platform
on Nov 24, 2008 at 6:02 PM
This is only open source blog on MS platform, which is readily available with appreciable degree of approvals
on Nov 20, 2008 at 12:37 PM
Really good job, Thank you!

Started test driving 1.3 six months ago and was very impressed. 1.4 continues the great features, quality and ease of use this open source platform delivers. Lots of fun. Thanks BlogEngine.NET team!
on Nov 1, 2008 at 5:27 AM
Excellent! Very simple plug and play. Not as other ASP.NET starter kits, this one really gives you a start.
Make sure the Framework is 2.0!
Thanks a lot!
on Oct 29, 2008 at 2:49 PM
Excellent platform. I'm using this on two sites. Thanks for a great job!

I've change my old Wordpress (PHP) on BlogEngine (asp.NET) at new blog (http://www.salute-uomo.com) and don't regret a little. But I have some troubles studying Windows server configuration after Libux. Anyway, BlogEngine is great standalone blogging platform for me! Thanks!
on Oct 16, 2008 at 6:52 PM
Really cool blog application...
on Oct 14, 2008 at 5:58 PM
Really good and stable platform for blogging, I like it a lot and are running it for several blogs by now. I would always choose this platform again.
The missing 5th star is for having some minor issues, that do not disturb functionality, but should be fixed in a future release.
on Oct 14, 2008 at 2:35 PM
BlogEngine is the best blogger in .Net, if you have a lil bit knowledge of the .net then you can modify it very efficiently.
i am using this in my blog http://www.newGenLives.com -
But we need some good themes and some more cool widgets.
I request to BlogEngine team to provide some more themes and widgets.
on Sep 23, 2008 at 5:02 AM
Well Done! Very easy to setup and easy to use.
on Sep 10, 2008 at 2:33 PM
Very good. The only real problem for me is printability - might have to tweak some stylesheets. Overall, way better than WordPress :)

a nice blog platform
on Aug 23, 2008 at 9:51 AM
Excellent value for money!! a great product based on a great design.
Well done mads.
on Aug 22, 2008 at 11:00 AM
very thanks for this great product.
on Aug 21, 2008 at 6:38 PM
Great product. The new version adds some ease of use benefits like widgets, in particular the TextBox and LinkList. I'm sure 1.4.5 feels like a bug fix to some, but to me it's an incremental increase in a great open community product, that keeps getting better. Thanks Mads, and all contributors. Let's all help keep BlogEngine.NET improving monthly.

It turned out that the 38 errors mentioned earlier were caused by an improper merge of 1.4 and 1.4.5 source files that I tried to base on file modification dates to avoid the need to start over localizing the source code even in files that remained intact between versions.
Pure 1.4.5 compiles and builds without any errors.

Upgrading from 1.3x is still a little flaky but the enhancements are definately worth it. :)

Opera does not support ClickOnce X
To install this application, save it and then open it. Opening it directly from Opera will not work correctly.
