To allow large attachments to be uploaded add change of override the MaxRequestLength parameter in Machine.config or Web.config.  For instance I added the following value to Web.config to allow uploads of up to 8MB:

<httpRuntime maxRequestLength="8192" />

So the full line read:

<httpRuntime useFullyQualifiedRedirectUrl="true" maxRequestLength="8192" />

Download this zip and extract into dasBlog root directory.  Remember to give NETWORK SERVICE (2003) read access to these files and the \code directory.

Then add http://.../PublicReferrers.aspx link to a sidebar in homeTemplate.blogtemplate.

To have certain links opening in a new window (and to be HTML 4.0 & XHTML 1.0 Strict compliant) use the following procedure:

1.   Create text file "external.js" containing:

function externalLinks() { 
 if (!document.getElementsByTagName) return;
 var anchors = document.getElementsByTagName("a");
 for (var i=0; i<anchors.length; i++) {
   var anchor = anchors[i];
   if (anchor.getAttribute("href") &&
       anchor.getAttribute("rel") == "external")
     anchor.target = "_blank";
window.onload = externalLinks;

and save this in a new directory "\scripts"

2.   Edit header secion of "homeTemplate.blogtemplate" to contain:

<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/external.js"></script>

3.    Using dasBlog's native editor (in HTML section) edit links to be in the following format:

<a href="document.html" rel="external">external link text</a>

For example:

BBC News site in new window


Update Regardless of tab settings, in Firefox links always seem to want to open in the same tab. The only way to force them to open in a new tab is to include the javascript in the document rather than a link to an external .js file.
