Hey, congrats, quite many out there. thumbs up

-- PeterThoeny - 11 Aug 2006

I added mine above... I cant wait for Twiki 4.1 and the next release of BlogUp...

-- JohnCavanaugh - 06 Dec 2006

Gulp, after checking out all the blogs listed here, they are in pretty sad shape. Not many have updated in the last few months, some of them are unreachable. I hope that doesnt speak to the future of this plugin. I really like it.

-- JohnCavanaugh - 06 Dec 2006

Welcome to the BlogUpRing, John. Hope to read some nice postings on your blog. Yes, some of the above blogs are non-maintained, outdated or unreachable. I am checking them back on a regular base and will remove those that are obviously abandoned.

The future of the BlogPlugin is bright. There is a big update pending which is a vast rewrite to make the BlogPlugin "farmable". I have not published it yet because it is based on the TWikiWorkbench framework and that one still needs some polish and docu before. This code is already running on JojoWiki.

-- MichaelDaum - 06 Dec 2006

Hi Michael, what does "farmable" mean ? I'll be joining you guys soon in the BlogUpRing, but first will have to continue waiting for the KoalaSkin before I can upgrade to DakarRelease.

A question, since I'm using the KoalaSkin, do you think it will be difficult to fit in the BlogPlugin look & feel wise ?

-- KeithHelfrich - 07 Dec 2006

"Farmable" means, that you can have multiple blogs in one TWiki installation without redundancy. The current BlogPlugin mixes application topics, TopicFunctions etc, with actual net data, your postings, in the same web. So creating two blogs means that all application topics are coppied ... which is bad. The upcomming BlogPlugin stores all application topics in a web of its own that the actual blogs then use.

Keith, unfortunately I don't know KoalaSkin at all. The upcoming BlogPlugin makes extensive use of VIEW_TEMPLATES and EDIT_TEMPLATES for all types of topics. Unfortunately the different skins (PatternSkin, NatSkin, KoalaSkin) all are slightly different, i.e. the name of the tmpl macro that holds the topic content. This is called content in NatSkin, textcontent in PatternSkin, and I don't know how it is called in the KoalaSkin. Although it is possible to ship different edit and view templates for each skin, this is quite an overkill working around compatibility. IMHO, this is an issue that should be solved in the skins.

-- MichaelDaum - 07 Dec 2006

I completely understand. I also don't have any idea of what the equivalent to content or textcontent is in the KoalaSkin. Though, I do know that I'm already accustomed to being required to piece together my own VIEW_TEMPLATES & EDIT_TEMPLATES for many a PluginPackage before I'm able to use it (SectionalEditPluginDev).

This is one of the real downers of using a non-defacto skin. But the thing is, I just love the look & feel of the KoalaSkin and its features. So, as soon as we've upgraded to DakarRelease, I'll have a go at putting together the templates & see what I can do. My main interest is in preserving the look & feel & functionality of my TWikiSite so that the users (and I) don't get totally confused!

-- KeithHelfrich - 08 Dec 2006

Great! Let's follow up on support for Koala in BlogPluginDev.

-- MichaelDaum - 08 Dec 2006

Two additions:

Two removals:

  • InfosecWiki
  • Simon Raven

-- MichaelDaum - 08 Dec 2006

Three removals:

  • Mike Seibert moved from WordPress to TWiki/BlogUp ... and back to WordPress now.
  • SimonRaven seems to have lost his interest in Kisikew too.
  • MartinCleaver, though his TWiki/BlogUp is still functional, has stopped commenting there in Oct 2006 and started on a WordPress based blog exactly about this time. So it seems as if he quietly abandoned the former blog.

-- MichaelDaum - 20 Jan 2007

I'd like to set up an rss feed that combines all feeds from all of the above blogs. This means that those feeds need to be merged chronologically. This may be done extending the HeadlinesPlugin as outlined at HeadlinesPluginDev. Anybody like to help out?
