Issue status update for http://drupal.org/node/10752

 Project:      Drupal
 Version:      cvs
 Component:    aggregator.module
 Category:     feature requests
 Priority:     normal
 Assigned to:  Anonymous

>From what I found, you have to be the original admin account to get the
"blog it" icon. I even tried making an "admin" role and giving it all
the permissions. The only way I see the icon is if I am logged in as
the original admin account. Giving all the permissions to the
"authenticated user" role didn't seem to be enough. 
I simply changed the original account to be my username. I know this
isn't a real fix but since I am the only person using that specific
install it fixes my issue.
Good luck,

I upgraded Langemarks Cafe and noticed that the "blog it" link from
aggregator posts is no more. So I did a clean install of cvs - and it
is still not there.
I use it every day as it is an integrated part of my site maintenance
routine. So for me it is critical - even though Drupal runs fine
Sure hope this is a bug and not something which has been removed.

I am on my slow computer and haven't done a full test (subscribe to
feeds and confirm it works), but the permisison name recently changed
from maintain blog to edit own blog. Make sure you have those all
selected properly in admin >> users >> configure >> roles.
Setting as a support request for now as I could not find any
inconsistencies in the code yet.

I hope this is the way to do this...
There is a thread discussing this issue:  http://drupal.org/node/10740
and I think Dries confirms that this was changed by design.  I myself
liked having the feature, so I added it back in on my site.  Patch
attached - hope folks find this useful...
I thought it might be kewl to make this an option to be turned on or
off in the aggregator admin settings - haven't got as far as figuring
out how to do that yet ;) when I do I'll post that too...
Since this was originally removed by design I've changed the status to
feature request.
I also tried to find another thread or issue but this seemed to be the
only one...
