I have not found the documentation on where the dasBlog site.config setting, of
came from - which is supposedly Grenich time, however, to make this show up with the Eastern Time zone correctly - it had to be set it to 40.
I was doing this before I started digging into how to use dasBlog - and found a timezone dropdown, in the configuration page, and then saw that 40 was Indiana -Eastern time -- so I fixed it from the drop down.
Added the "Tag Cloud" - did a search through the themes and found the dasBlogger theme had it So, I borrowed the tags
Both the theme .css file, and the homeTemplate.blogtemplate had to be modified to incorporate the change.
