Simple yet powerful and really extendable application for managing a blog within your Django Web site.
Zinnia has been made for publishing Weblog entries and designed to do it well.
Basically any feature that can be provided by another reusable app has been left out. Why should we re-implement something that is already done and reviewed by others and tested ?
More than a long speech, here the list of the main features :
- Archives views
- Related entries
- Private entries
- RSS or Atom Feeds
- Tags and categories views
- Advanced search engine
- Prepublication and expiration
- Custom templates for various contents
- Edition in MarkDown, Textile or reStructuredText
- Widgets (Popular entries, Similar entries, ...)
- Spam protection with Akismet, TypePad or Mollom
- Admin dashboard
- MetaWeblog API
- Ping Directories
- Ping External links
- Bit.ly support
- Twitter support
- Gravatar support
- Django-CMS plugins
- Collaborative work
