Colby's Basic Blog

Note: This is not quite ready for production. Working on an admin interface in the near future.

This basic blog template includes:

  1. Posts
  2. Categories
  3. Tags
  4. Feeds
  5. Basic Templates
  6. Optional comments via Disqus

Version: 0.2.2

This is set up to work with cp-project-template by the same author.

Installation

pip install http://github.com/colbypalmer/django-cp-blog/dist/django-cp-blog-0.01a.tar.gz

Quick start

  1. Add "grappelli" to the beginning of your INSTALLED_APPS and "blog", "epiceditor", "taggit", and "taggit-tags" to the end:

    INSTALLED_APPS = ( 'grappelli', ... OTHER SETTINGS ... 'blog', 'epiceditor', 'taggit', 'taggit_templatetags', )

  2. To use with Disqus comment integration, add 'DISQUS_SHORTNAME' = 'xxxxx' to your settings.py.

  3. Include the blog URLconf in your project urls.py like this::

    url(r'^blog/', include('blog.urls')),

  4. Run python manage.py migrate to create the blog models.

  5. Start the development server and visit http://127.0.0.1:8000/admin/blog/blogentry/ to create a blog entry (you'll need the Admin app enabled).

  6. Visit http://127.0.0.1:8000/blog/ to see your blog.
