As part of the recent forum upgrades i've installed the new Blog system from vBulletin.
About vBulletin Blog
vBulletin Blog is a fully featured blogging add-on that enables community members to create their very own online blogs within vBulletin. Giving members a place to post thoughts, ideas and musings will keep users returning to the community again and again.
vBulletin Blog makes it simple for community members to create their own space within the community. Getting started is as simple as posting the first message (using the same familiar vBulletin editor). There is no lengthy setup process - blog owners are free to personalise their blog at any time by defining a title and a description that will appear at the top of every blog post.
It is a feature-rich blog application, with support for fully formatted WYSIWYG posts, attachments, comments, draft posts and categories, as well as seamless integration with the overall vBulletin system.
Blog Home Page
Available via a single click from any vBulletin page, the blog home page aggregates activity from all member blogs into a single page ? with information about the most recent and highest rated blog posts, recent comments, a featured blog post (selected by the administrator or at random), full support for browsing posts by date and overall blogging statistics.
Syndication and Subscriptions
Site wide and per-blog RSS feeds allow syndication to external readers, and full support for vBulletin subscriptions enables users to join their favorite blogs and receive regular email updates.
Blog Control Panel
The Blog Control Panel empowers members to control every aspect of their blogs, from permission controls (who has access to view and comment on the blog), to full management of blog categories, draft posts and subscriptions. Blog owners also have the ability to moderate comments on their own blog.
