Enhancing Your .Text Blog - Allowing Readers to Rate Blog Entries
If you're interested in adding this rating User Control to your .Text blog, I'll have the source for the User Control and an article discussing it on 4Guys sometime next week. What is cool about .Text (at least .Text 0.94, the version I'm using) is that the page layouts are specified in User Controls themselves (in the /Skins/skinName/Controls/ directory). This means that I could, with just a quick edit in Notepad, adjust the main page so that after each blog entry in addition to the Feedback (xxx) link, there's also a Rate Entry link, which will take you directly to the interface to link the blog entry.
The natural extension to this would be to allow users to read / view the most popular (and perhaps least liked) posts...
(The Rate Entry option is only available by visiting the ScottOnWriting.NET Web site directly. I guess I could attempt to embed the necessary HTML into the RSS feed, but I doubt I'll do that, since for that (I believe), I will need to edit the .Text source and recompile/redeploy.)
