Prayer Time is time schedule for moslem prayer. This widget shows the daily prayer time based on user location. Thispicture below shows prayer time at January 11, 2009 in Jakarta. If you are from outside of Jakarta, the prayer time will automatically calculate base on your location.

  2. Login as Administrator
  3. Goto buttom of page
  4. Select “Prayer Time” from available widgets in combo box as picture below.
  5. Click Add.
  6. You can also move the widget to another location by refreshing the browser and drag n drop “Prayer Time” widget to desired location.



I hope this widget be useful for moslem blogger.

Upgrade to BlogEngine.NET 1.4.5

Alhamdulillah, my weblog already upgraded from BlogEngine 1.2 to BlogEngine.NET 1.4.5. Upgrading process is easy but should be carefully because there are incompatible settings and themes between BlogEngine 1.2 and BlogEngine 1.4.5. To upgrade BlogEngine from version 1.3 or 1.2 to version 1.4.x, you must prepare following items before upgrading:

  1. Upgrade theme if you are using custom theme (not included in theme package).
  2. Backup your xml data or database
  3. Backup your settings
  4. Create custom widget (if needed).

I’m alredy updated my theme (Cogitation) for BlogEngine 1.4.x and create new widget (Image List) for displays image in the side bar. You can download Cogitation theme and Image List widget from following links.

After upgrading BlogEngine, theme and installing widget, you might be need to reconfigure widgets. Rearange and add widget that you want to display in side bar.

I hope my theme and widget are useful for you.
