  • New Commenting options. You can now select 'Disqus' or 'JS-Kit' (Js-Kit was always possible via the interblog feature, Disqus is brand new and pretty slick!). This brings the total number of commenting options for RapidBlog to four (Blogger, Haloscan, JS-Kit, Disqus)

RapidBlog 1.80

Version 1.80 June 1, 2009
  • Several fixes for summary mode with categories and bullet lists.

RapidBlog 1.79

Version 1.79 May 5, 2009
  • In what is perhaps the most often requested feature RapidBlog now supports custom summaries. To use select the text you want to show as a summary and hit the 'summary' button -- It'll turn a light blue which is the hint that this is the summary text (to clear the summary use the normal rapidweaver clear formatting from the edit menu). If you don't explicitly select a summary RapidBlog will default back to behavior close to the old one
  • Added a div wrapper around summary text "blog-entry-summary" to allow styling of summaries differntly then main body text.
  • you can now specify a custom domain by entering the full domain including the trailing slash in the setup (e.g. instead of entering your blog name enter http://myblog.mydomain.com/ ) Make sure to have both the http and the trailing /

  • Various bug fixes including a problem for some folks running PHP 5
  • Added a nifty new "ajaxy" feature -- You can now specify that clicking on categories & archives brings only reloads the content and doesn't reload the entire page for a cleaner expereience -- enable this in the settings (general tab under sidebar)
  • Archives can now be grouped in a nice drop down list -- Useful if you have a lot of archives

RapidBlog 1.70


  • Fixed a problem caused by 1.69. My apologies for anyone who used 1.69 but you'll need to download 1.70 and re-publish the rapidblog page(s). Beyond fixing the problem I also now only apply the 'work around' if you have PHP 5.2.6 which should help remove any other potential problems.
  • Added a work around for a PHP bug in PHP 5.2.6 version (See the details of the PHP bug click here). This bug caused formatting in HTML posts to be lost because of the stripping of < and > characters

RapidBlog 1.67


  • Reverted back to the old way of exporting. With RapidWeaver 4.2 I had to make changes to be compatible. RapidWeaver 4.2.1 went back to the 'old' way so I reversed the RapidBlog changes as they caused some people problems.
  • Removed some warnings that occurred on some servers.
  • New Date Format added: dd-mm-YYYY
  • Archive months will now behave a bit better if you don't post frequently

RapidBlog 1.66 & RapidWeaver 4.2

Hi All,
If you are using RapidWeaver 4.2 & Rapidblog you might see some problems uploading pictures.  I've put up a release that *should* fix it here
The reason it's not available on sparkle or the download section is I am still waiting for some testing results -- if you try it and see any problems let me know.
-John

RapidBlog 1.1B6

Version 1.1B6, Mar 31, 2007

This is a fairly large change -- It has a lot of fun new functionality but also probably some less fun bugs. Proceed with this version only if you enjoy playing around.

  • Localized Dates. You can now provide a 'translation' dictionary to localize the dates as you like. Even if you speak English this could be fun (e.g. rename "Wednesday" to "Humpday") See the setup menu
  • "Header", "Footer" and "Interblog" text is now available
  • RSS Feed now identifies itself properly, you can add it as a feed in safari
  • More descriptive error messages
  • GUI redesign to get rid of useless boxes, should be more clean.
  • Archive's will not (mostly) skip months with no posts -- This is an odd feature that I'll need to describe better how it works but basically when you publish RapidBlog makes notes of what months you had posts. When the blog is actually viewed however RapidBlog assumes everything since the last publish should have an archive month. If you publish your site fairly frequently it should all work out fine.
  • You can now select archives to view 'Earliest First' or 'Oldest First'
  • The RSS Feed has an experimental new feature to support Simile Timelines, Simply add the parameter "?output=timeline" to the end of the rss feed (default to blogRSS.php) and it will return posts in a format that Simile can understand. I've gotten this working but it seems a bit finicky, if you get it working I'd be curious how it looks (especially if you can style it to match your site).. Lee me know
  • Lots of various little internal Fixes & Tweaks.

Rapidblog 1.1B3

Version 1.1B3, Mar 13, 2007

  • First public 1.1 release -- If 1.0 works for you, you should consider sticking on it until 1.1 final is out
  • Haloscan support is now implemented. You can choose between either blogger commenting or Haloscan
  • Fixed a problem with DOM tree rendering. RapidBlog should now render out pages exactly as the built in Blog client
  • Fixed a problem where when an error occured it would show up (incorrectly!) as a '_fastEncodingInCFStringError' -- if you were seeing that in 1.0 it meant some other error had occured but this was mistakenly sometimes displayed.
