README

Module that adds a front end editing form to the blog module, allowing users who have the correct permissions to write and edit blog posts without logging into the admin interface.

Dependancies

Via composer

The default way to do this is to use composer. If you are doing this you need to add:

"i-lateral/silverstripe-blog-frontend":"*"

To your project's composer.json.

At the moment this module is still in heavy development. Once this cycle stabalises we will look into adding stable releases.

From source / manuallly

You can download this module either direct from the Silverstripe addons directory or Github.

If you do, then follow this process:

The management widget

This module includes a management widget. You will need to install the Widgets module for this to work, but when installed will allow you to add a widget to your sidebar that adds links for creting and editing posts and moderating comments.

Templates

By default the front end post form uses Page.ss but also supports a "Blog_post.ss" template (incase you want to customise the page that loads the blog post form).
