Volt Blog Only

I’ve been following @Norm wish list for 2022 and there’s been some discussion about blogs for Blocs. I’ve updated my blog and used the Volt CMS blog features.

@InStacks states clearly that Volt is not as full featured as using a Wordpress template but I find it mostly more than I need.

Here’s my blog.

Please post your blog. If you have some shortcomings please post them.

I’m not looking for a discussion on cost as we all have free choice in purchasing addons.

Can I ask what you used for the comments section, was it easy to install?

I use Disqus. Just create a free account. Create a shortcut name and in the blog settings there’s a place for your shortcut name. Volt handles the rest.

Really easy.

Thanks, my two cents for features I’d like to see added:

  1. Recent posts: add a date checkbox to show postdate in the recent posts area.
  2. A simple :joy: two-column area where you could put two images side by side.
  3. Allow Disqus to post comments on each blog post. Not show all of the comments from other posts.

I think Volt CMS has matured over time and I’m hoping for some future updates.
Thanks for always being involved in the forum.

Actually that’s how it should be already by now. Will check.

Good ideas. Will work on that.
