I have to apologise to you for the state of this recipe!
It is not working with the latest fox.php.
At one point it did work by following pretty much just those
instructions on the cookbook page. But if you read the comments you

post. (PostCount). Quite a big change.

I am looking into this. At the same time my attention is on an overhaul
of fox.php, and adding post editing capabities, and true multi-page
processing. I need to make a choice what my focus should be:
a) update FoxBlog as it was, to be a simple blog tool (basically a
Fox adaption of BlogSimple)
b) create an advanced FoxBlog based on FoxForum (using display
templates and all other FoxForum features, and adding blog

c) finish the current overhaul of Fox first
All much fun. Is there anyone else who likes to have a go at a) or b)
Meanwhile you are trying to set up a blog which is half broken. My
