Features:

Too many times have we seen posts about embedding, integrating, and unifying Vanilla with bloated blogging software. Current blogging add-ons modify discussions into blog posts. However, blog posts and discussions are completely different things.

  • Article workflow consisting of draft, pending review, and published article states and based on permissions.
  • Comments with threading for replies to the top-level comment.
  • Guest commenting which is switchable globally with moderation and spam checks.
  • File upload for article thumbnail and images.
  • Top-level categories.
  • Simple and clean presentation of articles.
  • Stability and performance is of importance, and Vanilla 2.3+ is the target for compatibility.

The word "article" stands for content produced by both bloggers and journalists, and is interchangeable with "blog post."
