BlogEngine Maintenance

One thing I have found frustrating about the BlogEngine, when you are developing is I have to go on the the server to recycle the application pool if I need to refresh the object loaded in memory.

In addition I wanted a way to find out how may posts, pages and files the BlogEngine held in the application.  Also find out the amout of hard disc space they used would be useful.

So I went ahead and wrote a Maintenance section 

Installation is quite simple copy the admin/Maintenance folder in to the admin/maintenance folder.

Ammend the web.sitemap to include the maintenance

<siteMapNode url="~/admin/Pages/Maintenance/" title="Maintenance"  description=""  roles="administrators"/>

When you login as an administrator you will find the maintenance section appear. (3.83 kb)
