An Open Source, tiny and completely free blog engine that can be used for public access

editor's review





Blink is a very small, totally free and open source public-access blog engine designed to support the execution of multiple blogs at the same time, as well as to display links and a main page for accessing older posts.

Allows readers to post comments and search for posts

With Blink, your readers will be able to post comments and search for posts. Among its admin functions, Blink includes support for archiving all blogs, as well as the ability to view and delete new posts and comments.

Post can be organized by older or newer first

Another interesting feature is the ability to organize posts by oldest or newest first. In addition, you can set each blog to accept public posts, which can use automatic linking to all definitions, as well as semiotic bolding of definitions.

Offers various admin functions

The admin component of Blink offers various functions, among which we can mention that ability to archive blogs, as well as to set various viewing options for new posts or comments, and to delete them.

Getting started with Blink

To install Blink on your website, begin by downloading the latest release of the software from either Softpedia or the project’s website, save the archive on a location of your choice, extract it and put the extracted files in the /cgi-bin directory of your local or online web server.

Keep in mind that Blink must be executable by the web server. Having an empty file called /cgi-bin/.local will allow Blink to operate normally on the localhost. Blogs can be installed in the /cgi-bin/blink/ directory (e.g. /cgi-bin/blink/My_First_Blog).
