Working On A Redesign
I am currently working on a new look for the admin area. In addition to a new look, I will also be completing the admin functionality (such as user management). Once done, I will finally be comfortable in releasing the application to the general public.

Sorry, no time frame for this - but at least I am writing code again.

Things I've Been Thinking About
I am thinking that it might be nice to add an option to be notified when comments are posted. This could be done via email easily. I would like to know when someone has posted a comment on my weblog, and I could see benefit in allowing users to specify that they wish to be notified when someone comments on a specific post - this is very similar to the "subscribe to thread" feature found on many message boards.

I've also been thinking of adding in support for articles, similar to other weblog/cms apps.

Well that's it. As you can see, not only have I not been writing much code, I haven't been thinking much either ;-).

Display Number of Entries Or Number of Days
I've just completed a feature that was supposed to be around from the very beginning. You can now specify whether a specific number of entries are displayed or the entries for a specific number of days.

I will be rebuilding metaBlog tonight so that anyone requesting to test the app will have this feature available.

Hard Coded Stuff
I just realized that I hard coded some stuff in the code that generates the RSS feed XML file.

I will get this fixed shortly. Until then please change the Managing Editor and Webmaster information to reflect your own information.

metaBlog Is Available For The Brave
No, it's really not that bad, but it is incomplete and undocumented. However, I do have a nice little installer that will take care of most of the headaches. Let me know if you'd like to try it out and I will email you the URL for downloading.

Remember...if you use this, you are encouraged to provide feedback, just no bitching ;-).

Almost Ready
metaBlog is so close to being ready. I have been a bit under the weather the past day, so it is taking a little longer than I had hoped. I am working on the final touches now. Stay tuned.

Installing metaBlog
I've almost got everything in order for y'all to be able to get metaBlog up and running on your own site. The database scripts are done, all that is left is a tweak here and a tweak there to the code, and possibly some minimal documentation. Look for a download link this weekend.
