BlogEngine as CMS

Mar 5, 2011 at 9:26 PM

The pages feature of BlogEngine is surprisingly powerful, if used correctly, BlogEngine performs very nicely as a CMS. I have a couple of fairly basic controls that can be added to BlogEngine that are quite useful for navigating pages and page children. I use them to provide a table of contents at upper levels with tabbed navigation at sub levels. Rather than try to explain this too much an example can be seen here.

Click around the section to see it working. 

If this is of any use to anyone, then leave a comment and I will post the code along with an explanation on how to use, I'm sure with a little imagination somebody could take this further.

Really nice, but i need to use the breadcrumbs for posts also.So that it will be a perfect CMS

Have anyone tried this?

hi Binu,

Can you rephrase your query. As per me Breadcrumbs are not required for Posts, post already have post navigations.

I think you are looking for Page level breadcrumbs ?
