EviBlog Module for Sitecore 6.2

Posted Tuesday, March 2, 2010 5:53 PM by Kevin

So I keep hearing about this EviBlog module for Sitecore and how it blows away the old blogs module and how I just have to check it out. So, I finally found some time over the weekend to do a fresh Sitecore 6.2 install, downloaded and installed EviBlog (you can get it here http://trac.sitecore.net/EviBlog/ by the way), and spent a few minutes playing with it.

Here's the site I created (dunno how long this will be up - if you're really interested in EviBlog, feel free to contact me):


As you can see, I haven't done much with it yet, but I can say that Inline page editing works as advertised and the basic structure seems to be there to handle most blog needs. If the Live Writer integration and RSS feeds work as well, I can see myself using this on future projects for sure.

I linked these in the test blog post above, but if you are interested in EviBlog - I definitely think they're worth watching, so I'll link them again here:

Looks good, but it took awhile to load the first time I hit the page.

I'm glad to hear that you like the module. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Does anyone have an example of a live site that is running the EviBlog module? We would like to see some good examples that are out there in the real world. I always appreciate the demo sites but would love to see in action.

That site runs on EviBlog.

What I can't find out on trac.sitecore.net:

Do blog authors have to be logged in in sitecore?

Since there's a limitation of logged in users it's an important question to us.

Anyone else having livewriter integration issues? Installed lastest version 1.6.1 and livewriter tells me I don't have a blog on the server.

Hi - I have downloaded and installed EviBlog, and tried to create a blog as explained in the setup instructions. All is fine while I am inside the Page Editor - I can see my blog and my posts. However when I publish the site and then browse to the page there's nothing there - the source for the page is as shown below. What am I doing wrong? Other people seem to have had good results with it...

Also, as asked above, do you have to be logged in to Sitecore in order to create posts (or add comments)?

Page source:


<form name="mainform" method="post" action="/mywebsite/test/blogpage.aspx" id="mainform">


<input type="hidden" name="__VIEWSTATE" id="__VIEWSTATE" value="/wEPDwUKMTQyNjcyNDQ1NmRkC54JJdPpLIWGc5YZfoA4lMyHQhM=" />


 <div style="CLEAR: both" id="maincontent">

   <div id="mainfooter">
