Differences between the IBM Lotus Domino 7.0.2 Blog Template and previous external versions

The Domino Blog template, which was developed and maintained for over 3 years by an external source (Steve Castledine), was acquired by IBM® and incorporated into Lotus® Notes/Domino® 7.0.2.

Therefore, some IBM customers are already familiar with the template.

When the template was brought into IBM, some changes had to be made in order to:

  • remove Open source code
  • ease support of the template
  • simplify use of the template
  • change the user interface to fit in with IBM standards
  • make Language translation easier

These changes have, therefore, resulted in some feature removals, feature alterations and a different user interface (UI), which are discussed in this technote.
