What's the idea of having default Blog layout?

    Hey,

    What's the idea of having default Blog layout (Site settings > Blog > Layouts > Select Default Blog Layout)?

    I have already implemented my own blogging widget, but now I am doubting whether it was the correct approach. I see that in BetterCMS.Demo you too use widgets to make blogging experience happen, though I was wondering maybe there is some kind of other way making Blogging page, using Default Blog Layout?

    Thanks guys

    Hi Gabrielius,

    If you select Default Blog Layout, it will be automatically assigned every time you post a new article. In BetterCMSDemo project we have a custom layout for blog posts which ensures every blog post is formatted in the same manner (author, date, etc). It inherits some other layouts (including base layout). We use server-side widgets to implement custom functionality such as display 10 latest blog post headers in one page. Not to be confused - Blog post layout and widget layouts are entirely different, the latter being hidden in server side.

    Hope this helps, and don't hesitate to ask further if you have any questions.
