An Introduction to WebLogs

A Weblog site contains pages comprises of the short posts submitted by the weblog authors. The posts can be of variety of types, giving the author feel of journal or a cyber diary.

The weblog space provides an author a platform to publish their words, thoughts and ideas of mind. The author can publish a technical material so others may get a benefit or something that he or she wants to show to the rest of the world.

There can be anonymous visitors to the weblog as well as subscribers. XML gives the platform and RSS is the tech word for this. People subscribe to a weblog using XML Feed/Syndicate, also called RSS feed. There are number of RSS harvesters, ranging from plug-in for Email clients (Outlook) to separate programs.

Congrats for launching the service for Pakis. I wouldn't say anything in haste regarding this since it was all developed in .NET while the rest of world wants more modular and flexible solutions through open source, I am going to get an account and see how it was developed. Don't worry, I spare developers mostly, it's the design I can't get my arse through the glitches.

voila, the first compaint arrives just on time. (And before I start bombarding dozen followed by this, for heaven's sake, get this column right up there where it should be).
I did signup and got the email, verified but wait a min, where do I have to login? I see my page generating 404 error. There is no link to loginpage. Using my common sense (which is plenty, mashallah) I tried Login.aspx and it worked, but it should have been told by you.

The submit box wouldn't get my Pressing the Enter Key. I have to click it to get through the next page. And is this you want to show your users when something goes wrong?
[BlogDoesNotExistException: A blog matching the location you requested was not found. Host = [], Application = [login.aspx]]
Dottext.Framework.Configuration.Config.GetConfig(String hostname, String application) +91
Dottext.Common.Config.MultipleBlogConfig.GetConfig(HttpContext context) +350

Reality Check, gentlemen! I know its just the start of the service and I am sure this site would be a great place for people to hang around, just wanted to make sure your nerves remain under constant pressure and you don't loose the bigger picture of what this service is all about - The users. Good luck, killer.
