    Ever since the switch to XenForo, the Blog function has been absent from the forums for quite some time. But fear not, as after much hard work, the Blogs are back!

    As XenForo's structure for blogs is a bit different, all your old blogs should be merged into a single blog. However all your old entries should still be there.

    There's a few differences with the new blog system. The Blog page (which you'll see below) updates every five minutes, so if you make a blog, it won't show up there immediately. Don't post another blog because yours didn't show up, just wait a few minutes.

    While subblogs are gone, you can set categories for your blog as tags. Then you can simply click on the tag and show all entries tagged as such. It's a sort of alternative to subblogs.

    So head over to the blogs and start describing your mundane life to the world!

    :arrow: Check out the blogs!

    Actually the new system only allows for 1 blog per user, so all your blogs should have been merged into one.

    Ah, I just didn't remember what my last blog was. Although it says it's my movie blog as a whole.

    Also I have this for me. All of it leads to an error so it's no big deal.

    Yeah it should've taken the name/description of the first blog it found and merged the rest into it.
    Doesn't look like you can actually change the name and desc anywhere though, weird.

    If you mean the moderation bar on the top, I'll hide it.

    It should be hidden now.
    If it isn't, send me a PM so I can investigate.

    Are we going to be able to eventually customize the front page to see latest blog entries?

    I know I had nothing of substance in mine, but my blog is empty now. Pretty sure I had used the old one a few times.

    You are right, a few entries were apparently skipped.
    They should be there now.

    Yes, nice you put this up all explained, with the links and to see how this works.
    For some one who's got it in his/her fingers, like with passion would go do reply and link a lot of information. To me it's like a study in differences to what you see in other blogs, and this is just nicely done like how it should.
    If something what makes it exciting to you and you know almost how it works, you should spread it this way.

    Stunning business, stunning business in how you work out in a description: one can -twist it-to the outside, or let it show how you take care of it

    The Blog page (which you'll see below) updates every five minutes,

    You're referring to a future upgrade to the homepage? or am I missing something ?

    maybe that's because diffence in blogs, can be specialised to go more in this topic and use reply/permalink of one user (in this topic) there is much that can be blogged about, maybe some links would do help, 'virtual difference in adjusting' blogging so far it goes in the gbatemp underground gaming community, well me to help to think about it, when you heard of strafe controlling it for 'flow', to blog<> to blog. maybe if you lead this topic, you help to turn blogging into something right, and with 1 entry, plus links one user has permission with a sub, then it would be great to find, an easy blogger -- -with links on the begin how it intend to be- not closing it as low ending blogs.

    it's something to be discovered. see # on twitter is same sign as #permalink, if you are interested in blog's and how i talk about sign's same are feel free to post some picture's of blogging of pages you can. feels happy to be one take information and think how to describe it, to user along with users, depending not to explain why there are so many, because.

    on the go, blogging reason, in a state not to feel at the head of stopping bloggers, someone could find \coding help automation, in terms sayd that the plot is setup well.

    to be in my house everything neat and clean to you that kind of encounter same like time ago there's real material at the end. like a possibility to put maskingpaper on the inside lid of the trash fresh
