However, I’ve been growing dissatisfied with several things about it:
- There are great comment spam blocking features, but I recently started being victimized by trackback spam, and there isn’t much to combat that.
- There’s not much to help with importing RSS feeds.
- There’s not all that much flexibility in the configuration.
Since June, Drupal has released version 4.5.0, which has made a lot of progress towards being useful for a blog site. It has better support for trackbacks, including spam prevention for them, and can be configured to act pretty much like one would expect a blog to act, complete with anonymous comments. It also supports file attachments to nodes, one feature I’d been missing.
My one gripe is that the archive module stinks, but the tracker is reasonable at least. I’d rather let people see a whole month of history at once. Perhaps that will come yet.
