What does BlogIt do
When you install BlogIt, you will get a fully functional MODX blog based on Collections, getResources and Tagger.
- The BlogIt package will check if you have the correct version of Collections, getResources, Tagger, ClientConfig and pThumb installed and if not, will download and install those dependencies.
- After that it will add the needed ClientConfig settings, BlogIt chunks, plugins, templates and snippets.
- Finally BlogIt will create the demo blog resources.

Yes you can, this will also remove the blog it resources, and will uninstall the plugin dependencies (Collections, getResources, Tagger, ClientConfig and pThumb).

Articles is outdated and is not as flexible as Collections, using dependencies makes BlogIt easier to maintain and more flexible.

Not yet, but support for Quip and Disqus will be added in version 2.0.0.
Can I setup a article archive?
Not yet, but support for Archivist will be added in version 2.0.0.
