Blog module : Categories and archives

Since we have started the new blog which features Categories and Archive functionalities, which are not at the moment part of the standard Sitefinity installation, there has been quite a few requests to describe how is this done. I have done it with User Controls, and using the PostList control with the soon to be introduced CustomDataSource property. The reason I have not made these controls available for download is because they are using some of the improvements that will be introduced in Service Pack 2, due to be released on Wednesday, July 11th.

Shortly (and by shortly I mean few hours) after we release the Service Pack 2, I will publish the posts regarding these two controls together with the links to download the controls. I'm sorry for teasing you with these controls on the official blog, but you'll only have to wait for 2 more days :)

One of the other news is that Tags and Categories will be part of the standard Sitefinity installation and will apply to all Generic Content based modules (blogs, news...) from version 3.1, due to be released in mid September.

If there are some other widgets you'd like to see in Blogs, please drop a comment and I'll see what can be done. Some time this week I'll also make calendar widget available for download. The long story - short : the blog is picking up the pace again. :)
