Welcome to Geeklog Wednesday, June 19 2013 @ 09:07 AM EDT
Introducing the blog plugin, an implementation of the Blogger API for Geeklog.
What does this mean? It means that you can now post stories on your Geeklog site through a Blogger client (an appplication that lets you compose your posts offline).
And it doesn't stop there: It lets you post Forum topics, Static Pages, Journal entries, and FAQ entries, too. All tied in to Geeklog's permission system, of course. You can also restrict usage to members of certain groups and allow posting to the forum but not stories, etc.
But (there just had to be a "but" ...) here's the catch: This plugin is not free software ...
To recap: New features include the Static Pages plugin 1.3, a new search, rewritten "forgot password" functionality, new privacy options, extended Plugin API (center blocks, extensible user profiles), a new API for custom registration forms, and more.
Release Candidate 2 for Geeklog 1.3.8 is now available for download. It has a couple of fixes over 1.3.8rc1, most notably more restrictive checks for proper topic access. See the Changelog for a complete list of changes.
There were no database changes over 1.3.8rc1, so rc1 sites can be upgraded by replacing the files (there is no upgrade archive available, but the file docs/changed-files has a list of all the files that changed since 1.3.8rc1).
The tarball also includes updated language files for Italian, Japanese, Polish, Spanish, and Swedish as well as a new language file for "formal" German.
Bloggertown.com is a site that you can either get a FREE site of your own and write your heart away or link YOUR SITE on Bloggertown! It is FREE...The only requirements are that your site is child friendly.(see requirements on Bloggertown.com) Visit Bloggertown today.
In case you missed it (how could you?) - we've now installed the forum plugin here on the site and moved the former Help, Got Geeked, and Sites topics to it. So, if you need help - from now on, please post in the Forum. Thanks.

As usual, you are encouraged to try it out, but since this is not the full release yet, you shouldn't run it on any production sites just yet.
