Hi all,
Thanks for your suggestion and votes.
With just 6 votes in 2.5 years, we aren't currently seeing the strong levels of demand we'd need to justify focussing our efforts on developing an entire blogging suite inside WHMCS.
With so many excellent, feature-packed and free blog tools on the market already, starting from scratch today would require the dedicated efforts of our entire team for several release cycles to even reach feature parity with ex. Wordpress.
Implementing one of those existing solutions on your website today would give you the best feature-set available with a dedicated billing app (WHMCS) and dedicated blogging app (ex. Wordpress), even if it does mean maintaining two templates.
If there are smaller-scale, individually itemised improvements we could make the the existing announcements system, I'd like to see feature requests for those.
