    To whom it may concern

    Using the default blog set up in 3.7 sp 3 over the past three weeks we've been getting time outs when trying to view http://localhost:1188/Sitefinity/Admin/Modules.aspx?module=Blogs (that is the Blogs list) (Server is a 2008 64 bit, 8GB ram, 2.8GHZ Xeon processor)

    I am pretty sure that it's the counts for Post and Comments that is killing the performance.

    How can I modify the Blog List View not to display the comments and posts count?

    These only seem to occur when called through DynamicPostCount and CommentsCount.

    To be able to achieve this you need to map the control template for the blogs list view: ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Blogs/BlogsListView.ascx. Then modify it as bellow and restart the website.
    <%@ Control Language="C#" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="sf" Namespace="Telerik.Cms.Web.UI" Assembly="Telerik.Cms.Web.UI" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="sf" Namespace="Telerik.Blogs.WebControls" Assembly="Telerik.Blogs" %>
    <sf:BlogEditor id="blogEditor" runat="server"></sf:BlogEditor>
    <div class="ToolsAll">
        <asp:HyperLink ID="createNewButton" runat="server" cssClass="CmsButLeft new"><asp:Literal runat="server" Text="<%$Resources:CreateBlog %>"></asp:Literal></asp:HyperLink>
        <asp:PlaceHolder ID="fullWindow" runat="server">
        <div class="clear"><!-- --></div>
    <div class="workArea">
    <sf:MessageControl runat="server" ID="message">
            <asp:Label runat="server" ID="messageText"></asp:Label>
    <h2 class="gridTitle"><asp:Literal runat="server" ID="title" Text="<%$Resources:Blogs %>"></asp:Literal></h2>
    <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" AllowPaging="true" AllowSorting="true" PageSize="20" AutoGenerateColumns="false" GridLines="none" CssClass="listItems" runat="server">
            <asp:ButtonField ButtonType="Link" CommandName="Delete" Text="<%$Resources:Delete %>"><ItemStyle CssClass="gridActions delete" /></asp:ButtonField>        
            <asp:ButtonField ButtonType="Link" CommandName="OpenBlog" DataTextField="Name" SortExpression="Name" HeaderText="<%$Resources:Name %>"><ItemStyle CssClass="gridContentTitle" /></asp:ButtonField>
            <asp:BoundField DataField="Owner" HeaderText="<%$Resources:Owner %>" SortExpression="Owner" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="DateCreated" HeaderText="<%$Resources:Created %>" DataFormatString="<%$Resources:CreatedDateFormat %>" HtmlEncode="false" SortExpression="DateCreated" />
    <%--        <asp:ButtonField DataTextField="DynamicPostCount" HeaderText="<%$Resources:Posts %>" CommandName="OpenBlog" />
            <asp:ButtonField DataTextField="CommentsCount" HeaderText="<%$Resources:Comments %>" CommandName="ShowComments" />
    --%>        <asp:ButtonField ButtonType="Link" CommandName="ChangeSettings" Text="<%$Resources:ChangeSettings %>" HeaderText="<%$Resources:Settings %>"></asp:ButtonField>
    <asp:PlaceHolder ID="emptyWindow" runat="server">
    <div id="empty">
        <h2 class="gridTitle"><asp:Literal runat="server" Text="<%$Resources:NoBlogs %>"></asp:Literal></h2>
        <p><asp:HyperLink ID="createNewEmpty" runat="server" cssClass="mainLink" ToolTip="<%$Resources:CreateFirstBlogTooltip %>"><strong><asp:Literal runat="server" Text="<%$Resources:CreateYourFirstBlog %>"></asp:Literal></strong></asp:HyperLink><br />
        <asp:Literal runat="server" Text="<%$Resources:Or %>"></asp:Literal>, <a href="" target="_blank"><asp:Literal runat="server" Text="<%$Resources:CheckBlogsFAQ %>"></asp:Literal></a></p>
