hi there,

is it possible of making different content types for different types of Blog Post?

say, i want "Post Image" for posting images , "Post Video" for posting video. Currently , there is only 1 type of Blog Post.

i have tried creating a new content type, but i cant find Post Part...seems that's wrong approach.

Thanks.

A blog post is just a title, a body, tags and comments. So you can get those same results the blog module gives you out of the box with a set of custom types, and build the list of posts from a projection. What will be a little trickier will be the archive widget. That may necessitate some work.
