    I am currently creating a moderated blog using the tools provided with Sitefinity. My constraint is to do as few developments as possible, because this is a low-budget project.

    So far, it is going pretty well, I can duplicate most of what my client needs.

    I have two questions :

    - Is it possible to edit the blog without having to go to the Backend? The backend might be confusing to the end-user, and displays the "Pages" interface (even when i apply minimal rights), that he is not supposed to be able to see.

    - Is there a control that displays a list of all blogs, possibly sorted by categories? I haven't seen one, but maybe there's one? 
    -> If there isn't one, what would be the best way to devlop one? Should i make my own control from scratch or inherit from an existing one?

    Thank you,

    Hi Farouk,

    In the current release of Sitefinity, editing blogs is only possible from the backend of the project.
    For displaying items by category, you can use the Category widget (Content >> Classifications >> Categories)
    You can add Categories from Content >> Classification of Content >> Categories. After you have created the categories you need, you can add these categories to content items from the Categories and tags (when creating or editing the item). I hope that helps.
