I'm trying to create something like "Recent blogs" after some research I came up with two feasible options.
- Use Search Core Results - has been suggested that it is possible to create some sort of query to scan through people blogs.
- Keep a separate list just with recent blogs - would require event to add new recent blogs and remove old ones - just so that I keep recent 10.
- Create custom webpart which scans though everyone's mysite, collects all blogs and then shows only 10 most recent --- Bad bad idea.
I have decided to try option 1 (I tried option 3. already and ended up timing out the server.. sigh...). I have never used search core results so I have no idea where to start.
Is it even possible to use search core results? How complex is it? Can anyone give me some pointers?
