    Using the out-of-the-box blog module, is there a way to automatically import an external blog into the control?

    Cheers

    Hi Nas Khan,

    We have a tool (in the form of a user control) which imports blogs in Sitefinity from RSS feeds. In order to use it, you should add one more meta field for blogs called Guid, which should be of ShortText type and would contain the guid coming from the RSS item. Please fill it appropriately as this field will be used in the future for building correct RSS fields.

    Best wishes,

    i'm using this as a guide to import from blogengine, but is there a way to set the created date on the icontent? It shows up as readonly but I want it to match the date created in the original blog
