Don't do anything crazy like letting us know the easy way to do it.

This product is actually not working properly for me. In some cases it doesn't show a title at all (even though the person has a blog), and at other times it links to the wrong blog.

I'm on 3.7 with the most recent vbBlog release.

As I described in post 8, this hack has two obvious problems for me. I fixed half of it. Now when it actually manages to show the entry title it links to the correct entry. I did this:

Change blogtextid to blogid:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

However, I still can't figure out why an entry title doesn't even appear most of the time, but works perfectly for some people.

It was appearing correctly for some users, but not others.

Perhaps it has something to do with characters? For instance, on the image that I posted, the blog title should have been
v___v;
Perhaps the ; messed it up or something?

That's not it. I have people on my site with no special characters in their titles but it still doesn't work for them, while working for others.

Ahh, I've found out what the problem is. For some reason, when the person has any comments on their blog, the Latest Blog Entry link does not appear correctly. I'm guessing the wrong variable is being used somewhere.
