When I bought "XenBlog" – which advertises itself as "full fledged blog"... – I can only say this is not the case. It is just ONE blog and it totally misses structure, user experience, logic and standard XF core classes. It is as simple as it gets, you can not have blogS (plural) per user, there is just one blog for ALL and it is mixing the terms "blogs" and "blog entries" (which they actually are only) together. CSS Classes like "moderated", "deleted" or "sticky" entries are missing entirely, so styling and customization is not possible until I would recode the templates myself, which wasn't what I was looking for... Looking under the hood of the code this is not XF standard development.
I looked for a while here on Xenforo.com after a good blogging system for my XenForo forum and found Xen blogs. After a while with this mod I found a pleasure in it and have a great blog on my forum. The mod is not complicated and you can therefore work well. I can recommend it to others. While there are other similar mods, but Xen blogs is well compatible with current and XenForo 1.5.
As other have mentioned well done addon, so far it has been easily extendable for our purposes. We actually use it more like a article repository more than a actual blog system. I think this is one of the better implementations on Xenforo for this type of addon. Hope to work with the developer on building out new an exciting features.
Great plugin! Quick and easy. With more opportunities to further improve functionality. If the author is a little add functionality, which I wrote in the subject of the discussion plugin - then this plugin can constant super popular. Thanks!
