The new blog system is up and running
https://www.physicsforums.com/blog.php [Broken]

Unfortunately I was not able to import the old entries. I tried my best! The old system is no longer supported. This new system is authored by vbulletin so this won't happen again.

If needed I will create a little applet so users can access their old blog entries in a plain text format.

The good news is that since the new blog uses current vb functions chroot is working on getting latex working.

Accessing the old blogs as plain text is better than nothing for those who may not have had time to preserve their old entries, even if it's only available for a month or so to give them time to save them and copy entries into the new blogs if they want.

Enabling LaTex in the blogs sounds like a more positive move.

Yes, that would be great. Please inform us when you create it and give us short instructions how to use it! :smile:

Will there be a "hit" counter?

I wonder...
if you redirect
https://www.physicsforums.com/blog/ [Broken]
to
https://www.physicsforums.com/blog.php [Broken]
you might be able to hold on to its current google ranking [at least for a short time] when http://www.google.com/search?q=physics+blog".

I'm not sure how well that would work... or if it is desired.

The box "Blogs' Statistics" is overlaying the blog on the right.
Does anyone else get this?
