uBlogsy

Note: uLoremsy is causing issues in Umbraco 7 installs. If you are seeing ghost nodes, please delete the dll.

uBlogsy uses the awesomeness of Razor.

- Spam detection and optional auto deletion (optional in v3 MVC)
- Auto comment approval (optional in v3 MVC)
- Dashboard control for approving comments (optional in v3 MVC)
- Contact form (not included in v3)
- Pages
- Multiple authors - with search by author
- Predefined categories
- Tags - with a new tag datatype and awesome tag cloud
- Archive
- Related posts
- Search
- RSS
- Auto meta tags based on title and content for SEO
- SEO friendly #! links to comments

Note: uBlogsy 3 is a re-architecture and is now available in MVC (default) OR Webforms (see downloads). You MUST be in MVC mode (see umbracoSettings.config) before installing the MVC package. uBlogsy 3 is also now powered by lucene.

uBlogsy 3 Webforms comes complete with comments.
