SubText is the engine behind our company blog. With the goal of ensuring a smooth transition between the main website and the blogs, I spent some time tightening up the styles for the aggregate and individual blogs last week. This required a custom SubText skin and lot of css tweaking.
Though I’ve previously had the SubText source running on my machine, there was no need to update or rebuild the solution in my current case so just went ahead with a local installation using the Microsoft Web Platform Installer (Web PI).
I just checked the SubText box, provided answers to a few key setup questions (admin user credentials, SubText database, etc) and I was up and running in minutes.
Once the setup was complete, I was asked if I’d like to launch SubText. The SubText Installation Wizard picked up where Web PI left off and the setup couldn’t have been easier.
Web PI provides quick and easy installs for lots of goodies. Check it out.
