Domino 7.0.2 comes complete with the new "IBM Blog" template.

Adapted from Steve Castledine's Dominoblog template, and indeed showing it's roots in the dominoblog.ntf template filename, the new template allows Domino to fully support RSS enabled blogs out of the box.

As the "about" document in the template explains...

This database allows you to create individual or team based "blog" websites or other types of content based websites.

The database works straight out of the box after completing a simple creation wizard.

Current Features

Template and Tag based design makes it easy to change default designs to suit individual or corporate requirements

Full inbuilt RSS Feeds from Content/Comments and Categories of Content

Comment/Discussion system with anti-spam functionality

Future automatic publishing or expiry of content

Notes and Web based content editing

Supports Podcasting

Automatic Content Archiving and Searching

Social Bookmarking

But how well does it work?

A review of the template, and how it compares to the original Dominoblog template will follow. Until then, this is how it looks out of the box
