If you compare Lithium´s blog-feature, for example to Wordpress, out of the box it is stripped but is it possible to build to have same features than Wordpress?

Hi @apache

 

You'll find our SBB Community blog here.

 

Almost everything is customized. First, we used the blog module out-of-the-box.

We missed some features, just compared with a blog platform like WordPress.

 

The new version is fully responsive, contains category filter, pagination, comment counter etc.

 

A few more community blogs:

Thanks @schwarzd for your examples.

 

Those are good examples but we are looking for blogs what are seriously modified with custom code.

Thanks @VarunGrazitti. Now I have a pretty good view about what can be done.

 

But also I can see that all the Lithium based blogs seems to include same kind of features. There is difference only with look and feel.

To answer your question it would be good to understand what Wordpress features you are looking to find the Lithium equivalent for. On paper and looking at a raw feature list most of a Wordpress blog's features are present with Lithium as well. On top Lithium provides enhanced features like gamification to encourage and reward engagement on the blogs. Lithium through member profiles both for authors and commentators adds additional depth and personalization to the blog discussion and help you understand how these groups are active on other areas of the community. And if you are using Lithium Reach you will have a sleek blog campaign planning interface that allows you to understand impact of each individual blog on a glance via the built in analytics.
