Rich set of blogging features for professional blogs

ArtfulBits Blog significantly enhances capabilities of the standard SharePoint Blog site with the tag cloud, zoomable image, external links section, search blog entries by category or tag, and many other powerful options.

Images and videos are provided in separate blog entries entities, not within the body of an article, thus making them more visibly pleasant in the general view.

Users can interact with each other as in a social network

User can comment the article and they can comment each other! This feature literally turns your blog into a social network by enabling user interaction. Standard SharePoint Blog site provide a possibility only to comment an article.

Users can “Likes” and “Dislike” each other’s comments, thus making the process of evaluation more objective. Standard SharePoint Blog site provide a possibility only to like a comment.

Configurable branding theme

You can customize the look of your blog so that it conveyed your own style. Change the colors of the buttons, article titles, highlight menu and “like/dislike” buttons and many other settings.

Convinient archive

ArtfulBits blog archive provides all article info in a single view - images, video, article name, blog entry body. It makes it easy to browse through the archive, the same as through the main view. On the other hand, SharePoint Blog site displays only the name and metadata.

If you create a blog entry in hindsight with a past date, you will be able to see it in the archive under the corresponding time category. While SharePoint Blog site do not provide this possibility.
