BalfBlog 2.3 to be released this week ūüėĄ

I'm very happy to announce that this week I will release version 2.3 of BalfBlog.

That's really it. But what BalfBlog 2.3 brings is a huge update, by far the biggest update since BalfBlog changed from JBlogs or perhaps since it changed to having it's own backend. 2.3 has brought so much that I don't have time to skip through the changelog to find all of the features it brought. I will name a few of the key features however:

  • 2.3 moves to a more modular and better design of blogging system.¬†
  • Polls! They were created so long ago and yet I am now finally releasing this feature. It's not quite perfect but it should do for now.
  • User biographies - write about yourself and become¬†a narcissist.
  • A lot, lot more Ajax - that means when you press a submit button, in most cases you will not leave the page to do this
  • A new Administration section
  • Move from PHP¬†associative array and constants to a JSON file for the settings.
  • Better subscriber and user management
  • Export tools have been improved.
  • New information¬†section
  • Moved from MySQLi to PDO, making the blog more efficient
  • Template system has been brought back, allowing you to completely change the way a post is displayed
  • New help desk feature allows remote login¬†to help you setup and maintain your installation
  • More flexible content management system
  • Option to switch to CKEditor instead of TinyMCE.
  • An update to the new post, update and delete¬†backend¬†appearance
  • Soon to have a logo (hopefully in time for this release)

If you are interested in the next version of BalfBlog, let me know by getting in touch, I know the next version has one new website which is going to commit to using it instead of something like WordPress or Joomla which is great!
