Comments:
I've PM'd MichaelC about me writing a Blog Extension and if he was okay with it, quite a while ago. I have not yet received a reply. I know they're very busy with I don't know what not.. So I've started writing a blog extension. I hope I didn't step on anyone's toes by doing so, if so: let me know. So if Michael, or phpBB for that matter, want to pick up their 'phpBB Blog' again I'll abandon this one.

After doing some more research, meta tags are really outdated. So I'll not be implementing those. Instead I will use a blog description. Which will be used as the meta description. The description has to be between 130 and 160 characters, otherwise it doesn't get grabbed or cut off.

I'm no meta/seo expert, so feel free to comment.

Hello,

It's quite a good idea to implement a meta description tag, but take care tat you should have an unique description per page (blog description for home, category description for categories, a short extract for posts) :)

Well, it's good to hear about a phpBB Blog again.
To my mind, I would really love to see a system where post author could choose what to display for the home (an extract, a particular photo, etc...).

Thanks for the info.

The way I have it now, is the only time I implement a meta description when one specific blog is being viewed and it grabs that specific blog description, entered by the author itself.

When viewing latest blogs or just a list of blogs in a specific category you can choose to show entire blogs or cut them off after a specific amount of characters. So basically it always shows atleast the top of the blog, so they can put their specific blog image in there (if they want to/have any) and such.

In a bit, I want to have most of it done before I publish it.
Making good progress.

Still have to do:
- reporting
- look into adding it to the search
- look into adding subscriptions

Alright, I've uploaded it to a public GitHub, so you can view and download the Repository.

When downloading, make sure the extension route is:
./ext/posey/ultimateblog/readme.md

Please do not use on Live Boards yet!
I still have to do quite a lot of stuff, such as Reporting, Search and Subscriptions.
Also probably bugs, errors and features will mostlikely pop up once people start testing this on a (local) test board.

Please note that this extension requires PHP 5.4!

So, feel free to start testing and let me know what you guys think! :ugeek:

It works perfectly on my test forum.

I have a suggestion: on the board home page could have the last posted blogs. :)
