Welcome to BlogEngine.NET 1.6.0

Sunday, 24 January 2010 09:00 by homemovers

If you see this post it means that BlogEngine.NET 1.6.0 is running and the hard part of creating your own blog is done. There is only a few things left to do.

Write Permissions

To be able to log in to the blog and writing posts, you need to enable write permissions on the App_Data folder. If you’re blog is hosted at a hosting provider, you can either log into your account’s admin page or call the support. You need write permissions on the App_Data folder because all posts, comments, and blog attachments are saved as XML files and placed in the App_Data folder. 

If you wish to use a database to to store your blog data, we still encourage you to enable this write access for an images you may wish to store for your blog posts.  If you are interested in using Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, VistaDB, or other databases, please see the BlogEngine wiki to get started.


When you've got write permissions to the App_Data folder, you need to change the username and password. Find the sign-in link located either at the bottom or top of the page depending on your current theme and click it. Now enter "admin" in both the username and password fields and click the button. You will now see an admin menu appear. It has a link to the "Users" admin page. From there you can change the username and password.  Passwords are hashed by default so if you lose your password, please see the BlogEngine wiki for information on recovery.

Configuration and Profile

Now that you have your blog secured, take a look through the settings and give your new blog a title.  BlogEngine.NET 1.4 is set up to take full advantage of of many semantic formats and technologies such as FOAF, SIOC and APML. It means that the content stored in your BlogEngine.NET installation will be fully portable and auto-discoverable.  Be sure to fill in your author profile to take better advantage of this.

Themes and Widgets

One last thing to consider is customizing the look of your blog.  We have a few themes available right out of the box including two fully setup to use our new widget framework.  The widget framework allows drop and drag placement on your side bar as well as editing and configuration right in the widget while you are logged in.  Be sure to check out our home page for more theme choices and downloadable widgets to add to your blog.

On the web

You can find BlogEngine.NET on the official website. Here you'll find tutorials, documentation, tips and tricks and much more. The ongoing development of BlogEngine.NET can be followed at CodePlex where the daily builds will be published for anyone to download.

Good luck and happy writing.

The BlogEngine.NET team

Moving across states with firearms.

Monday, 2 November 2009 22:46 by homemovers

If you are a gun owner and moving to another state, you have some details to work out. This is just a general list and is by no means a definitive set of rules. This is not legal advice, please look up all state and federal laws pertaining to the legal transportation of your weapons.

  1. Will your guns be legal to own in your new state? If not, you have to decide on whether or not to sell them or give them to a friend or family member.
  2. If you are planning on driving, look up the laws on transporting firearms for each state you will be passing through. Most of the time you will be fine as long as your firearms are unloaded and securely stored in the back of your vehicle. But double check all of the laws and regulations just to be sure.
  3. If you hold any concealed carry permits, check to see if they will be valid in your new state. Or any states you will travel through.
  4. You may be able to ship them with you by plane. There is just a bunch of security precautions you have to go through. But both airports you go through must be approved to transport firearms. So check the firearm policy with your intended airport.
  5. For a fee, you can ship your guns through a gun shop in your area to a gun shop in your new area. This is another way to help get everything registered and legal in your new state.
