What is Blog?
Blog extension allows creating news feeds on the wiki. These news feeds can be shown on any page and users can be allowed to add their own news.
Usage / Features
To display a blog on a wiki page, the tag <bs:blog /> should be placed on it.
By default it shows all the pages in the namespace "blog" as blog entries with the most recent post appearing first.
The behaviour of the blog can be influenced by adding attributes to this tag. In this way e.g. the number of entries to be shown and more can be configured.
Some aspects of this extension can be configured on Special:BlueSpicePreferences under section "Blog". Here wiki administrators can configure the default values for all the settings that can be configured by adding attributes to the blog tag.
