Blogging features

I’d love to see blocs implement more blogging features.
Ideas:

  • A bric that can grab the title, date, and description from your latest post(s)
  • RSS feed generation at export
  • Blog post template that will update the layout for all blog posts

Volt CMS!
And support from @Jannis is first class.

I second that! Volt CMS, it’s well worth the price.

I moved to Blocs to get away from a CMS for security and speed reasons. I think it’d be nice to have some extra blogging features built in for users that don’t need a full CMS. Something to get Blocs to work more like 11ty does but have the UI and simplicity of Blocs.

I’m pretty sure that a lot of people are using Volt CMS and have no security or speed issues. Just have a look at the web page and decide yourself.

Surely it requires some form of backend work for the magic to happen?

Volt is using the necessary nuts & bolts for this to happen and much more secure than WP.

Oh and volt is lightning fast too.

Other then manually doing what you need, then Volt is perfect.

If I recall correctly, mr @Eldar has an excellent video (or full course) on blogging with Blocs, also addressing pros and cons of using plain Blocs vs VoltCMS. :sweat_smile:

Also might want to checkout this topic:

(But maybe Blocs also could benefit from a couple of features built in, too. I don’t remember if Rapidweaver’s blog/posts module were builtin, or an addon …)

Something like that would be cool

iWeb was just brilliant. I remember building a few small sites with it for 2 business ventures I went into and I loved it…I just worked!!!

I remember adding images and phoning friends to check on there laptops if it had worked!!!

I’ve started using Ghost as my blogging platform now. I have it set up in a subdirectory, so it is located at wxcyber.com/blog/. I still use Blocs for the rest of my site. It’s not the prettiest shift from Eldar’s sidebar template to the Ghost template Casper but it works, and it’s made publishing content so much easier for me.
