BlazeBlogger 0.9.1

2009-08-29 by Jaromír Hradílek, tagged as release

BlazeBlogger 0.9.1 has been released! Among several bug fixes and various usability improvements, the most significant change is the introduction of placeholders for easier cross-referencing and possibility to change the exact location of each of the post information; see a complete list of changes below.


  • Added %post[id]% and %page[id]% placeholders, making it possible to safely refer to the post or page with given id, no matter what URL it currently has.
  • Added --number and --reverse command-line options to blaze-list and blaze-log utilities. This is mainly to make log and posts/pages browsing more flexible and less dependent on additional Unix utilities such as head or tail at the same time.
  • Made location of post information optional. You can now set the location of post author, date of publishing, and tags by changing the value of,, and post.tags options respectively.
  • Added post-footer class to the style sheet.
  • Improved RSS feed creation, so that the produced output is much cleaner.
  • Extended documentation.

Bug Fixes

  • Trailing spaces in post/page title are now properly cut and no longer result in superfluous dashes in URL.
  • Missing or invalid header data are being repaired more thoroughly and appropriate warning message, describing what is wrong and how exactly was the problem solved, is displayed.
  • Pages with foreign diacritical marks can no longer end up with empty URL. Instead, the URL is based on the page ID and user is warned.
  • Similarly to pages, tags with foreign diacritical marks can no longer end up with empty URL as well. Instead, the MD5 hash is used instead and user is, once again, warned.
  • Both post/page author and assigned tags can safely contain colon mark.
  • Language file contains ‘posted on’ string.
