CQ5 blog- Collab vs Social

Avatar

Level 3

I am working in CQ5 blog pages. The JSP's under collab/blog all say that  "DEPRECATED since CQ 5.6.  Use /libs/social/blog/ directly"

What difference will it make if I still wanna go ahead with the collab/blog pages instead of the newer social/blog ?

What are the underlying features that differ in these two Blog systems ?

I've not dug into the 5.6 version of the blog component yet, but I have quite a bit of experience with the pre-5.6 version. To be honest, it's a feature that I've had some struggles with extending or customizing, but they seem to be making improvements version to version. For this reason, I would recommend using whatever is most recent.

Make sure to ensure that your licensing supports use of this component, though. Sometimes that can get a little tricky.

When Adobe places makes a piece of software deprecated, it means that this piece of software will be dropped within a few releases. So having said that -- it works in the current version  - but in future versions - the functionality will be gone. You can still use it if you want; however, it is recommended that you use the new piece of functionality as opposed to the deprecated component.
