Manual Install Instructions for SMF

Description:

SMFBlog: A (very) simple SMF blogging system


Introduction
SMFBlog is an extremely simple blogging system for SMF. Certain boards can be marked as "blog boards", and these boards will all be listed on the main blog page. Blog posts are topics in these boards, and comments are replies to these topics.


Warning!
This mod is still beta. In short, this means that it may still have bugs in it. Please report any bugs you find, no matter how trivial (I even consider things like incorrect grammar in code comments as a bug :P ).

Installation
Simply install the SMFBlog package :D
In order to use the pretty URLs, you'll need to rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess (yes, that's a dot as the first character). If you already have a .htaccess file, copy the entire contents of the htaccess.txt file to the end of it.

How do I use this mod?
Using this mod is extremely simple!
Firstly, specify one (or more) boards to be blog boards. This is done by editing the board, and ticking the "Use this board as a blog?" option. You may add some new boards for this purpose :)




Once this is done, start posting new topics in that board!




Any topics in this board will appear in the blog




Customisation
Most of the CSS styles used by this mod are in the Themes/default/blog.css file. To change how stuff in your blog is displayed, edit the styles in this file. Additionally, if you'd like to customise more, this blog uses the Themes/default/Blog.template.php template.

Before you request a crazy feature addition...
... please remember that this is a simple blog. I will not be adding any complex features to it, instead opting to keep it as simple as possible :) .
