Hi All,

Looking at WordPress I see some pretty nice plug-ins. The point is I do not like WP for my own reasons. However, the plugins that are available are pretty useful, if only been written for BE as well.

So I want to try and convert some of those plugins to BE widgets.

I am not entirely unfamiliar with programming (been doing that for 25+ years although not in C#) but I need some sort of manual or extensive description on how to create these widgets to start working.

Is there something available on this subject, most likely a step by step description?

Hi,

it's not that hard to create widgets for blogengine.net. The only prerequisite is basic knowledge of asp.net and user controls. rtur wrote a nice article that describes the steps to create be.net widgets.

Look here:
