I recently checked in new functionality in to the master branch of sBlog.Net. They are:

  • Role based access - By default "1" user belongs to the "Super admin" role. All other users will be under the "Author" role.
  • Author listing page and posts by author
  • Disqus support - Go to the settings page to play with it
I have recently started using bootstrap for a number of my projects (day job & personal projects) including the official site for sBlog.Net. So I was thinking of using the same for the administrative section of sBlog.Net! However, I am treading carefully, since I also have to update jQuery! So this could be expected soon! Watch out!

Hello Folks!

I received a few emails about the ability to use sBlog.Net with MySQL as the backend and so I jumped in to that missed. I was able to successfully modify the project to use MySQL! I created a branch off of the master branch in github! Check it out here !

On the MySQL side, go to the sBlog.Net.DB\v1.0\Install folder where you will find a Init.sql file. I use phpMyAdmin for working with MySQL. You could do the same and use the import functionality to create a new database using this .sql file! Now, you can fire up Visual Studio, open the project downloaded, update the connection string, thats it! You are all set!

Have fun and let me know your comments!
