Converting To Live Blog (Mandeeps.com)

This is what I did to upgrade to Live Blog from the default DotNetNuke Blog.

image

I downloaded the module from http://Mandeeps.com

image

When you extract the .zip file there are versions for each version of DotNetNuke. I upgraded the site to the latest DotNetNuke so I chose the DNN62 version.

image

I used the Extension Wizard to install the module.

image

After installing the module, when I placed it on a page I was presented with the License Manager.

image

You enter the email address you used to buy the license and click a button and the activation key is emailed to you. I enter that and activation is complete.

image

Next, I am presented with the blog set-up and instructions on setting permissions.

image

I go to Manage Blog…

image

I select Settings

image

I select Import

image

I select the blog I want to import from (note, if you don’t see your Blog, contact Mandeeps for the latest import plug-in).

image

I enter the number for the Blog I want to import then click the Import button.

image

The existing Blog content is imported into Live Blog.

I repeat the process for all the other Blogs I have.

image

I perform the minor configuration described in the sample post (then I delete it as instructed).

The Blog is now ready to go!
