A Flat Month List in BlogEngine.NET

by Kerido Wednesday, December 1, 2010 6:00 AM

Yesterday I received an automated notification e-mail informing that my additions to the BlogEngine.NET source code have been merged with the main repository. This is really a new kind of experience to me. Although I have contributed to open-source development, it's the first time I'm so inspired by the project and interested in its evolution. And, probably, it is the first time I know my change has been accepted.

Speaking about the contribution itself, it's a small enhancement to the Month List widget. Since I started to use it, I wanted to display a flat list of months, sorted from recent to oldest:

  • January 2010
  • December 2009
  • November 2009, etc.

I added two properties – GroupByYear and RecentDatesAtTop – to implement that. Without changing these, the widget looks the default way to retain backwards compatibility.

Blogging Platform Updates

Today we updated our blogging platform to BlogEngine.NET version 1.6. We are excited to use new comment moderation features. It's not a secret that many blogs are now becoming spam victims. This is why we say many thanks to BlogEngine.NET developers for implementing additional mechanisms to fight spam: comment auto-moderation, comment filtering, and batch deletion.

Cheaper than Ordering a Pizza

We hope, you'll be as excited as we are! For a limited time, KO Approach is available for purchasing at less than one third of its original price. For KO Approach Basic it means five ninety five – cheaper than ordering a pizza! No hidden fees, no limitations, no nags!

You will get a fully functional license that allows you to unlock all of the functionality. Here's just a brief list:

  • Folder Menus for one click directory navigation
  • Approach Items for instant access to favorite apps, documents, and URLs
  • Titlebar Menus for CTRL+click parent directory hierarchy navigation
  • Unlimited menu depth
  • Previewing graphics and text files from KO Approach menus
  • WAV sound playback from KO Approach menus
  • Full support for contextual menus
  • The ability to copy to clipboard a file listing of any directory
  • Free upgrades

To sum things up, with KO Approach, opening files and folders is non-distracting, fast, and fun. And affordable!

Being honest, $5.95 is not the type of price I particularly like. The reason is: with the price less than $10.00 our payment processor takes 15% from every sold license, so we only get sligtly more than five dollars. Well, here's another deal: the Advanced license for just eleven ninety five! This is a great offer if you plan to run KO Approach on many computers.

But forget about money. We love our users. We love when they post feedback to us. It's great when their feedback is positive. If the feedback is negative, we do our best to learn from it. So please send us your thoughts even if you don't feel like paying. And have fun using KO Approach!
