1 # Blog Module
2
3 ## Introduction
4
5 The blog module allows you to post blogs on your SilverStripe. It includes the ability to post blogs using a site front-end form. Blogs are summarised on the blog holder page type, with more detail viewable when a specific blog is clicked.
6
7 ## Feature Overview
8
9 - Front-end blog post form
10 - Posts allow bbcode
11 - RSS feed for blog and also feeds for comments on posts
12 - Easily customizable
13 - Tag cloud widget
14 - Archive widget
15 - Blog management widget

17
18 ## Page types
19
20 We have chosen to go with the following page types to include with the blog module:
21
22 - **BlogTree** This is a holder of BlogHolder. If your site has only one blog holder, you won't need this page type.
23 - **BlogHolder** The BlogHolder shows BlogEntries, and provides a way to search etc.It would also contain methods to post new blogs.
24 - BlogEntry: This is simply an entry/post for the blog.
25
26 ## View Archived Blogs
27
28 Blog archives can be viewed by `year/month` by appending the year, followed by a forward slash, then the numerical month, to the end of the BlogHolder URL. Alternately, just the year can be appended to view entries for that year.
29
30 for example:
31
32 - `mysite/blog/2007/6` would show blog entries for June 2007
33 - `mysite/blog/2007` would show blog entries for 2007
