This one is simple to use. The original version can be found at: (Creating a XBox 360 Widget.) I just wanted to update it for my own needs, and so that it would run with current BlogEngine.NET Core. This is what it looks like…

Twitter Widget I wanted to post Twitter feeds for a variety of Blogs and ran into several problems with the incarnation I found available on the web. (TwitterFeed-Widget for BlogEngine.NET) Running Multiple blogs, I ran into cache bleeding into each blog since multiple widgets or multiple blogs were never thought about when originally built. I assume this widget, was just a first attempt. In that light, I only assume that this iteration is my “draft” version as well, but hope to improve it as necessary.

I based my implementation on SqlBlogProvider, but since it was out of synch with BlogEngine.NET I had a dilemma. My biggest complaint about BlogEngine.NET if I had any at all was the fact that sometimes changes come at a snails pace. This is not to say that you can't find a new build there every other day, but that the major enhancements I want don't always take, or in the case of MultiBlogs, the most popular enhancement to date, is completely ignored. Once Jacob Proffitt created a solution, I figured it would be rolled into BlogEngine.NET. OK, so I was Way off on this one. So here's a strategy: ...

Please support my technical-development community support initiative and send checks for any amount to help offset the cost of my next “ergonomic” workstation. You KNOW I’ll support the community MUCH better with this in my office. :) (Update: This is completely sarcastic. I'm not sure it would be taken that way after re-reading it many years later.)

Pipedream: Multiple Blogs I’m not sure if anyone else has noticed but the NUMBER ONE requested feature of BlogEngine.NET (That’s #1 by a landslide) is to support Multiple Blogs per installation. I have been struggling with this concept and while searching for and designing a workaround using BlogEngine.NET and the Provider model using SQL Server only, I came across SqlBlogProvider that also uses Linq to SQL. This model supports Multiple Blogs in a single SQL Server Database in a single Application folder. It now also supports multiple hosts or domains per blog if required. So the only dilemma I’m struggling with today is where to go from here...
