I think what I'm looking for is less fully-featured than the Blog mods already underway. Please can you advise?
I only need one blog for the site, it's a news update site for a single project.
I'm hoping to:
 Have the option, when posting, to create a new blog entry (or page) with the posts' content.
 Make the blog post link to the relevant forum topic.
 Show extracts from any topic replies on the blog page. I assume I can do this with the RSS feed?
If somebody has already done this, I apologise and would welcome a pointer!
If they haven't yet, I'm willing to have a go. I could use some help.
I'll need to know how, exactly, posts are stored and retrieved from the mySQL tables, as I'll have to use the same data when creating new tables for the blog entries. I can't even figure out how the urls are created
