This was bound to happen. But it didn’t have to. For an open source framework like DotNetNuke, so powerful and widely adopted, yet blogging or even publishing an article was an after-thought. In the OpenSource world they say, “The product has to be absolutely top-notch to succeed” and yet instead of harnessing and shoring up on the success of DNN, the Blog module stands there, lackluster in every sense, reeking of neglect, derelict, unending wait except for the oohs and aahs of what’s about to come in the next version.
I know I have been looking like a totally third class blogger (with DNN Blog) without the ability of notifying commenters when their comments have been replied to. Without the notification in place, nobody knows that you’ve replied to them and you cannot really build a meaningful discussion in the absence of a Notification. Even if people do come back and reply to you, the thought chain gets spread over multiple, in-between comments that make no sense to a passer-by. DNN Blog really needs a Notification. Oh well, DNN Blog needs a lot of things to be really up to par. Here’s my quick and dirty solution to add a ‘Notify’ solution to the DNN Blog module.
Maybe its the sign of old age. I’m not used to people ignoring me. Alright, so DNN Blog module has been bugging me coz of its incompatibility with Feedburner. If you try to import your DNN Blog module feed into feedburner, you would notice the images are all missing. Here’s a quick fix for a happy feed burning.
“We hates it.” “We loves it.” No. I think “we mostly hates it.” I’m so jealous of all the bloggers around me that I decided to put down my own list of top 10 must have features for DNN Blog. Bear with me, while I list down features that you have already been using for years, at LiveJournal, Wordpress, Typepad or the likes and I haven’t been. And I sure hope I can get to use some of these, at least.

Look, I know you’re big, and that’s cool. I’m a small blogger, that’s pro'lly somethin' you don' bother 'bout. Ya see, I had been runnin’ AdSense on my blog but you freaked out on somethin' and locked up me account. I’m straight, dude, I’m cool. I know how it works, you and the god damn one time appeal. Excuse my forwardness on the situation, but I ain’t got that much time, shit to do, just like you, my man.
