site with/without domain name

I am not sure what I am missing.

I applied the blog templates feature.
When I use http://servername/blogsite, it looks fine.
When I use, the default sharepoint blog template shows instead of the applied templates.

Confused. Thanks in advance!

Hi SillyGoose,

Did you try applying the template to the fully qualified name?
i.e.: to the "" instead of "http://servername/blogsite"

Tell me if this works.

Tried it.

It showed "The web application at could not be found...."

Do I need to do anything on SharePoint setting?

I'll bet the problem is because your webapp URL is:  "http://servername", not ""

Open up install.bat, and change this one line:

set blogsiteurl=%webappurl%%blogsiteurl%

to be:

set blogsiteurl=%blogsiteurl%

Now run the installer and instead of using the relative URL of the blog site for the second parameter, use the fully qualified URL of the blog site.

Thanks Mike.

It showed the error "the solution with the same ID is already deployed."

Fixed the issue by adding access mapping !
