I took some time last week and got DotNetNukeBlogs.com upgraded to the latest version of DNN, 5.1.2, and also made a few other enhancements. I’ll be testing out some more enhancements over the next few days. For those blogs who can’t seem to syndicate good HTML in their feeds we’ll be stripping all HTML and trimming the descriptions down for posting on the home page.
We will however still link directly to the blogs, just as we’ve always done. At DNNBlogs we don’t intent to try to steal your content for our own purposes like some other aggregation sites, we post your syndicated content and link directly to your posts, not to another page on our site.
We also corrected a problem with permissions which was preventing people from being able to add URLs or modify existing URLs, if you run into any problems of that nature please let us know immediately.
This morning I made some minor tweaks to DotNetNukeBlogs.com this morning. We now have a new category for Japanese DNN Blogs. You can get the RSS feed from the links on our pages with the other categories now as well.
I've also modified the RSS feeds to include the author information in the feed, I'm still waiting for Feedburner to propagate these changes to verify they work, but it should make it easier when subscribing to our feeds to see who made the blog post before clicking on the link in your RSS Reader.
So with the success of the website here at DotNetNukeBlogs.com we've branched out and started providing two new RSS feeds. One for Spanish DNN blog posts and one for Chinese DNN Blog posts. As we get other languages supported with new feeds we will setup categories for those as well. If you've been holding off submitting your feed because it isn't in english now is the time to add it!
Why DotNetNukeBlogs.com? Our goal is to be the premier aggregator of DotNetNuke related materials. DotNetNukeBlogs.com was started by DotNetNuke Core Team member Chris Hammond with the intention to provide a place for the leaders in the DotNetNuke Community to push their content to those needing it most, the users.
Stay tuned as we continue to grow. If you're a DotNetNuke Expert be sure to get your feed added into our aggregate system.

For the past few months I've been working on a project in my freetime (what free time) that I am proud to say has finally been launched!
Check it out at DotNetNukeBlogs.com. The goal of the site is to provide a single source providing links to the best DNN blog posts across the web.
