That looks really cool Jim.  They sure have a lot of features for the bloggers!

Sounds like fun!  :BigGrin:

I downloaded the mod last night and did a preliminary look at the code to see if everything is compatible and it appears to me.  I may install it later tonight, just depends on the time.  I may install it on my test forum first to make sure it doesn't break something.  I also need to backup the files that it alters in case I need to restore them at a later date.

If you want to see what the mod looks like in action take a look here.

The layout is what the Blog will look like, of course the colors are not right for our theme.  At least you can get an idea of what it will look like.  The site is actually the author of the mods blog.

Looks good Jim.  I like the nice uncomplicated layout.
