This add-on provides a dashlet to display the last ten blog posts and submit new posts from the site dashboard.
The Create Post action provided by the dashlet allows quick and easy creation of new blog posts without leaving the dashboard.
The dashlet is packaged as a JAR file OR an AMP file for easy installation into Alfresco Share.
To install the JAR, simply drop the
site-blog-dashlet-<version>.jar file into the
tomcat/shared/lib folder within your Alfresco installation, and restart the application server. You might need to create this folder if it does not already exist.
To install using the AMP, use the
apply_amps script that should be provided with Alfresco.

mvn package which will produce an AMP in the target directory.
If you prefer to deploy to deploy the JAR file rather than an AMP, you can find this in the
