    Blogs gone for good?

    Not concerned with old material, just wanted to post a new one. Will they come back or do I have to leave laboriously long new threads? Just kidding. Like I said, no biggy.
    Thank you.

    Trying to get a decent blog system that works was the battle. The previous one was bloated and another failed attempt to get some sort of blog system going. Vbulletin finally released an official blog plugin that is quite nice and fully supported. It needs the most recent version of vbulletin, which I happen to be installing tonight. So I do plan to give the official vbulletin blog system a try since it's made by vbulletin and not some hacked together implementation with issues. So stay tuned, it will likely be up tomorrow

    vbulletin blog system details:

    Fast Start
    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.
    Fully Featured
    It is a feature-rich blog application, with support for fully formatted WYSIWYG posts, attachments, comments, trackbacks and pingbacks, 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.
    Profile Support
    Member blogs are integrated with the vBulletin profile system – profile information is displayed alongside blog posts, and existing profile pages are enhanced with information about blog activity.
    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, trackbacks/pingbacks and subscriptions. Blog owners also have the ability to moderate comments on their own blog.
    Admin Features

    * Full Control
    Integration with the vBulletin usergroups permission system allows site owners to regulate which users are able to create blogs, and enhancements to the vBulletin admin control panel give administrators total control over the whole system.
    * Painless Installation
    vBulletin Blog is a plug-in product that can be installed into your existing vBulletin installation within minutes.
    * Fully Customisable
    Blog utilises the powerful vBulletin templating system, and will automatically inherit styles and color-schemes from the forums, for total out-the-box integration.
    * Anti-Spam
    Full support for the Akismet anti-spam service stamps out comment spam.
