I'm using t3blog on a TV based website (http://secure.t3sec.info). It
took my some time to configure but it's possible to use it with a
custom, non-snowflake layout. (t3blog is only used in one page)
Please read the manual to understand which static templates are at
minimum needed.

The only bug which is still existing is that a new posting is always
overwriting a content-slide CE. But it needs my seconds to delete the
duplicated CE again.

In addition I'm using several XCLASSes but only to produce XHTML
well-formed code.

The author is fixing reported issues. So it's worth to create them on
