Feature Exclusion
Due to the advances in WordPress integration we have decided to rethink the “Simple Blog” feature request. This was also discussed with the original feature request author.

We will soon be releasing a WP Plugin to integrate FSB seamlessly with WordPress, including being able to show your cart contents, categories, products in page etc. and it will come with a free and premium option.

We will soon reassess the Simple Blog feature request as a set of features to organise and expand on the content you can add to FSB (e.g. categories, tags, commenting).
