I've installed and am testing this on a closed beta site, great job so far!
A few first impressions, from installing and using to skimming this thread.
- I'd like an easier way to rename it from "Blog" than manually editing the language file.
- I'm not sure how difficult it would be to set, but perhaps a User controlled permission to allow comments on, off, or friends-only? I see that when posting, there is a checkbox to enable comments - having a friends option would be a great enhancement.
- Perhaps uploading could be done via the standard PHPBB add attachments protocol (when writing posts)?
I would also love to see a layout change. On boards where the avatar size is larger, the user/blog poster info is disruptive (see my image embed below). Could this be moved off to the side? Or is it possible to dynamically resize the profile picture to thumbnail size (as ProSilver does on mobile devices)?
The guy in the tophat (me) is the profile picture, and IMO it doesn't need to take up the full space. If it were reduced to a postage stamp that fit beside the 3 lines of text that would be perfect.
All in all, though, I'd like to say THANK YOU for all the work so far - this extension is amazing
