 TROUBLE SHOOTING
*****************************************************************************************
 - pass over at least the first argument ($page_id)
 - mask text with "your text " or 'your text '
 - within your template index.php file use: <?php display_blog_menu(); ?>
 - within a code module use: display_blog_menu();

*****************************************************************************************
 STYLE THE OUTPUTS ACCORDING YOUR NEEDS
*****************************************************************************************
The output can be customized to your needs without touching the code itself, by the use of CSS definitions. 
Open a code page and enter the following code:

echo "<div id=\"myblog\">";
display_blog_menu(12);
echo "</div>";

The additional div section can be used to restrict the style defintions to the blog menu only, without influencing 
the rest of your layout.
