.NET version of WordPress?

Whom of you fellow ASP.NET folks out there has a blogging solution that trumps WordPress in terms of features and modules.

I’m curious to see what kind of blogging engines exist in the .NET side of things as for me, personally I have always felt that WordPress is by far one of the best blog engines today (Moveable Type 2nd).

That’s quite a bold statement to throw out there, and the gauntlet has been thrown on the ground to all my fellow .NET friends.

What’s your favourite blogging engine and why..

I’m open to what you have to say in this space.

    I’ve been hearing a lot of positive things about BlogEngine.NET recently, built from the ground up using ASP.NET 2.0. http://www.dotnetblogengine.net/

    In terms of modules, you’ll find little to compare up against the mighty WordPress.

    However, I was pointed to BlogEngine.Net (http://www.dotnetblogengine.net/) by fellow members of the local DNUG and I’m really digging it.

    There’s a number of good skins, plus all the major WordPress functionality required to get a decent blog out such as dynamic and static pages, ping, moderated comments, tag cloud, etc.

    While there aren’t as many extensions as WordPress, a number of them are ports of popular WordPress plug-ins so it seems that it shouldn’t be too hard to port over your favourite ones should you be unable to live without them.

    I use Blogger, but heard good things about Subtext.

  4. I would recommend you look at our product, Graffiti (http://graffiticms.com). I think you would find it very comparable to WordPress in terms of simplicity, flexibility and power.

    Disclaimer: I work for the makers of Graffiti, Telligent.

  5. Hi Scott,

    I’ve been successful in running a genuine WordPress blog on ASP.NET using the Phalanger Beta 2 compiler.

    Not sure you want to go this way for a serious "production" blog, though…

    I would avoid Telligent products at all costs. They suck you in with cheap costs then blackmail you into subscriptions and cost increases from $400 to $5000. Beware.
