Blog

Is it possible to have an interactive blog on my a website designed with Design Extender? I don't want a Wprdpress website.

Power CMS Builder can be used to create a blog using the template concept.

see the following tutorial

Is there a Wizard in the works for blogs? It would be a great tool?

Thanks for the info.

A blog is quite a bit more complicated than something a wizard would be able to create.

login for the admin, insert / update and navigation to start with...

more than a simple wizard would be able to accomplish.

Interactive Blog

Is there a tutorial that teaches an Interactive Blog where people can leave comments?

No, there is not a tutorial for this.

you would need to create a new table for comments:

comments
commentID - Priamry key
commentBlogID - ID of the blog being commented on
commentText


in the tutorial i linked to, the blog detail page uses a URL Variable to load the blog article:
<a href="blog-details.php?ID=<?php echo $row_BlogRS['ContentPageSetOrder']; ?>">


the ID Url variable can be used to populate hidden form element in the comments form.

then use an insert record behavior to insert the comments.
