  • Creates a page of site bloggers that includes author and blog information.
  • Enables advanced blog navigation by author, post date, etc.
  • Integrates with Token module, allowing usage of blog title and / or description in fields that work with tokens.

Roadmap

It's been some time since I've had the resources to do development here. Like svendecabooter, this project originally fell in line with sites that I was working on at the time. Unfortunately, I've moved on from those projects and have yet to have the need for this functionality.

It should be noted that similar results can be achieved using http://drupal.org/project/views_customfield and http://drupal.org/project/content_profile. Using Views and Content Profile has proven to be a more stable route as well as a more flexible one. Therefore, unless someone wishes to take up the flag and continue development, I suggest that efforts not be spent on a D7 port.

Thanks

Initial funding for this project provided by Emergent Behavior for MrsRiley.com.

Also, thanks to the maintainers and contributors of past blog modules.
