Additional Documentation

Please request additional documentation of general interest here. As requests are addressed within the documentation, they can be removed or archived with a link to the answer. If the requests are deemed too narrow for inclusion in the documentation, perhaps they can be archived with a link to an answer in the forums.

Documentation Requests

1. Can someone please provide documentation on how the Moderate Comments feature works? Where and how do unmoderated comments get reviewed?

2. Can the extensions page (http://www.dotnetblogengine.net/wiki/Extensions.ashx) be expanded to list when the events are called, ie the post.served, etc. IS that called when post served on RSS as well as on a page? Also if you can expand it to list the parameters for each event handler, and what options do you have. Can you add handler on post.served and then check to see if serving an RSS feed, and if so then check for media files and add them as enclosure tags to support podcasting?

3. Regarding enclosure/podcasting, take a look at these posts. I'll add it to documentation for 1.4 when released.

Could you please fix this download (BE11ThemeCreationWMV.zip) it has been corrupted and the Flash .swf version still stops half way through.

Thanks, Mike

Could someone expand, or expand on, section 3.4 - Code Behind Considerations?
I want to have my home page NOT use the master page at all. OR, I want to turn off sections of the master page, as mentioned in 3.4, but really need an example. Thanks in advance!

Could you add some documentation for the web.config file? I'd like to know what options I can configure there.

Could you add some screenshots to the documentation to show the standard themes - I'd like to see what something might look like before I install it. The dasBlog site has a set of screenshots that are quite helpful, though rather small; I think it would be better to produce a similar list but link to larger images.

Version 1.6 has a new logging system, but I can't find any documentation on this enhancement. Can logging be configured? Where can we find the logs? Do you use Logging.Net or NLog for logging?

I think there should be some discussion of errors caused by sub applications inheriting web.config settings. Luckily I had tackled this before but when I took some time out to bring all the location inheritInChildApplications information together in one place I discovered there is a lot to trip developers up! Here is my blog post - please feel free to use any snippets / sections of text if you decide to cover this in the documentation - http://runtingsproper.blogspot.com/2010/04/solved-breaking-parent-webconfig.html

Please make the default admin login details more prominent. Perhaps its my own fault for jumping ahead but I expected to find it at the top of the Initial Configuration link. I did find it in the fresh installation guide but I initially dismissed this because I had used the Web PI to install.

"Can someone please provide documentation on how the Moderate Comments feature works? Where and how do unmoderated comments get reviewed?" I note there is no link to the "Comment Management" section in the documentation table of contents.
