So you've decided to give Blosxom a whirl! I think you'll love it about as much as I do.
Please choose a version of Blosxom most applicable to your circumstances.
- Mac OS X
The shareware Blosxom for Mac OS X installer, version 2.0 [.pkg.tar.gz] is the simplest way to get Blosxom on your laptop, desktop, or closet Mac without any of the muss or fuss of installing it by hand. A couple-three clicks of the mouse and it'll skip lightly through the nitty-gritties, installing Blosxom itself, some sample flavours, documentation, and some useful plug-ins. If you're used to nicely packaged applications and prefer to be spared the gory details, this is a treat, I tell you!
Perhaps, though, you're a do-it-yourself'er and would prefer to delve into the basics of how Blosxom works. Download the "Everyone" version and follow the by hand instructions.
- Windows 2000/XP
A Blosxom for Windows 2000/XP installer is in the works. Check in every so often with Blosxom news and, of course, the Blosxom mailing list. In the meantime, please use the "Everyone" version.
Blosxom, version 2.0 [ZIP] is simply a CGI script to be dropped into place and configured ever so slightly. Once you've grabbed yourself a copy, head on over to the installation instructions.
Blosxom's flavour templates allow you to completely customize the look-and-feel of your Blosxom blog. You'll find detailed flavouring instructions online.
- To get your started, the Blosxom Flavour Sampler [ZIP] is a collection of sample Blosxom flavours to poke, prod, and borrow from. Unzip the sampler and drag all the flavour files into your Blosxom data directory.
There are oodles of third-party plug-ins to expand, extend, integrate, and delight. You'll find them all in the Blosxom Plug-In Registry.
