Any help for an easy to use blog plugin?
not sure about blog.
Ideally a blog that you can add a blog from edit mode.
Ironically. SimpleBlog did exactly what you are suggesting "a front end interface" It was a block only package. It got great reviews...but I couldn't justify keeping it up with the composer tool slamming the door shut on viability.
I have simpleevents cal installed on another clients site, and that worked great. A blog tool that works like that is exactly what I'm looking for
Anyhow, SimpleBlog in fact was rereleased and redesigned from the ground up to be a front-end block "Blogging" experience that comes with a composer view, and is %100 migratable to ProBlog should you decide to do that.
Sorry I failed to post back on this.
Thanks for replying to this thread hereNT!
If in edit mode, it will give an extra button above your blog items 'place new blog-item', this will pop-up up a window, fill it and publish. Easy as that. Give it a try.
There is a video on how to set up the default blog to use them here:
and a step-by-step in text and images for setting up Oembed as the blog here:
After that, it's just a few minutes to add the dashboard page manager.
You can get both of them for only $25 as a package deal:
