    Any insights on what to do if my customer wants to “blog ahead” and schedule the blog posts to appear on the right date. This approach only works if you write everyday.

    Hi

    How do I download this blog package.
    I want a blog package for a multiwebsite installation - this seems to be capable.

    I have tried ublogsy

    Hello, which Umbraco blog package did you use in the blog example above? We've tried to use uBlogsy but it won't work. We're looking for a solid blog package that is easy to implement in Umbraco and actually works. Thanks.

    Greg,

    This blog package is the Blog 4 Umbraco package. Have you tried that package?

    Are you using Blog 4 Umbraco or uBlogsy?

    A great post on blogging with Umbraco. I think it's a shame that blogging isn't built into the core product, that way it would be much easier for small business owners to adopt Umbraco instead of Wordpress, which is one of my goals. To help support this I'm writing an Umbraco tutorial site <a href="http://www.uquickstart.com/">www.uquickstart.com</a> for non technical users which will hopefully attract some former Wordpress users to try Umbraco

    Hey, Paul I generally agree. But I think uBlogsy is a good option these days.

    I'll check out your new package when I get a chance!

    Someone asked prior to my question and it was never answered, but their problem is my problem as well. I need to be able to schedule blog post, and when I attempt to do so now, it seems to "appear" to schedule the post, but it is never published on the date and time scheduled. Please make this make sense to me as soon as possible please.
