First, let me say that I really think AtomSite has a bright future.   There's a lot of great features there and I'm glad to see a .NET MVC blog solution that is actively being worked on.  I also really have enjoyed looking at the source as it has helped me ramp up on many C# 3.0 use cases.

My question was if there is any way without forking the code to get the BlogHome to show the contents of a collection like "Blog".  I could redirect under IIS, but I was curious if there was a way to put the user right into the content similar to engdaget or codinghorror.

Hey Justin,

This can be done through a plugin which registers a route with a higher merit than the BlogHome route (thus overriding that route).  However, this seems like an easy feature that could be added to the existing blog plugin.

Also, another option is to make your own theme that has a custom BlogSummaryWidget.ascx that is based on the same code that is in the BlogListing.aspx page.

Hope this helps.
