 Blog Overview
This web log (blog) feature will provide integrated blogging features withing the project.net application. The technical objective of a blog is to make it reusable, pluggable so that the functionality can be separated from project.net.
 What are the uses of a Blog?
Each user can create a blog entry within a project or their personal page. A blog entry can optionally be related to an item in the system (e.g. task ).
Each user should have a personal Blog which allows to record their completed work, status, and other general comments. There will only be one blog per workspace. Any team member with edit permission to the blog module can post a new blog entry. Blog entries can be read by any member with read permission for the blog module. Only the blog post author or the space administrator can edit a blog entry. Blog posts are dated and linear. The blog should be integrated with the project.net security and notification services.
A user's personal blog consists of all blog entries they have made within projects or on their personal page.
A user can view another person's blog by visiting that persons Profile Page. The Profile Page (covered by another backlog item) will be similar to a light-weight Facebook page.
