New Blog App 3.0 with Details-Paging, Open-Graph, Share-This and Very-Rich-Content

The new Blog App offers loads of new, neat features, including Multi-Language, Share-This integration, paging in read-mode and Very-Rich Content. Le'ts look at the highlights:

Paging in Read / Details View

This is something we copied from large online newspapers, allowing a reader to page to the next (or previous) blog-post while reading. You can design it as you wish - this is what it looks like by default: 


Very Rich Content

Previous version of the Blog App already supported adding apps to the details-page, but the editing experience got a bit complicated. Thanks to the new Very-Rich-Content feature in 2sxc 8.9, this is now awesome. So you can just add any app inline into your blog-post, and write more text right after it. Here's what it looks like in the TinyMCE wysiwyg editor:


Open-Graph Headers for Social Sharing

We're now including all facebook and twitter open-graph headers on the details-page, to allow great social sharing :).


Share-This Integration Built in



Multi-Language EN / DE included

We now made the blog-app multi-language, so all fields and all buttons/labels are ML and pre-translated for English and Deutsch/German. 


Categories and Tags

Wordpress uses a combination of Categories and Tags to mark their contributions. Basically categories are more stable taxonomies (usually there is a page just for that category), and tags are more volatile folksonomies (spontaneously assigned). This is now the default on the Blog App.


Minor Improvements

  1. Publishing / unpublishing now uses the 2sxc standard method
  2. Special optional header-fields available for more SEO control
  3. Cleaned up and re-organized fields to make it easier to edit
  4. Improved post-management with admin-list


Download the DNN Blog App 3.0 from the App-Catalog or check out the code on GitHub. Note that it's using some newer features of 2sxc, so you'll need 2sxc 8.9+. 

Love from Switzerland,

PS: I'd like to welcome Raphael Hirscher to the sexy-team. He also implemented some of the features of the Blog 3 :).
