For release 22.214.171.124 a new feature was added so that the blog module would show the top and bottom content panes when viewing individual blog posts. The instructions are to add this to the user.config:
<add key="Blog:ShowTopContent" value="true" />
<add key="Blog:ShowBottomContent" value="true" />
This is a great new feature because otherwise when you clicked on a blog post you would lose the main blog title and also the calendar navigation. I want to create a pane in the layout.master so that on the blog for example I can create a static header basically with a couple small graphics, a blog title and even a return to blog home page button.
The problem is that the top/bottom content panes do not show on the blog posts even with the two keys added to the user.config file. And Yes, I did touch the web.config file and even manually recycled the memory pool in IIS. Still no luck, the panes won't appear on post pages.
Ideas? I'm probably missing something small.
