    Why isn't blogger module showing my bloggers list? Could it be that I do not have a provider assigned?

    Hello Rob Gaudet,

    BloggersList control get the Author names for each blog and loads them in a list. Initially you should set the author for each blog under Blog Settings section. On the public side we are getting a list of all blogs ant the author for each blog

    Sample code:

    public partial class CustomControls_BloggersListView : ViewModeUserControl<GenericControlPanel>
    {
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            BlogManager manager = new BlogManager("Blogs");
            IList blogs = manager.GetBlogs("Author");
            foreach (IBlog blog in blogs)
            {
                if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(blog.Author) && !String.IsNullOrEmpty(blog.BlogPage))
                {
                    ListBox lb = new ListBox();
     
                    ListItem li = new ListItem();
                    li.Text = blog.Author;
                    lb.Items.Add(li);
                    Controls.Add(lb);
     
                }
            }
     
        }
    }
