What about the blog module?
« on April 10th, 2011, 04:35 PM »
Hello! :)

I'm planning to implement a blog system on my forum. So, as I'll move to wedge as soon as it is ready, I wanted to know if there is a system that uses the same DB tables / structure and - if that is not the case - how has the tables to be build in order to maintain the compatibility with wedge.

Thank you! :)

It's built in.

Specifically, it uses the topics and boards and messages tables - the one difference is that for the board(s) in question, there's a type column that will contain 'blog' instead of 'board'.

Yes. As for features -- they're not all implemented yet, but have a look at nao.noisen.com for an example of how it'll be working in the end.

Well, I'm going to be moving innovatenotimitate.com off WP, so you can expect it to do "the business".

The length is offset by the fact that it's a "sentence", so it's easy to remember. :)

Indeed, and in the current climate, of browsers more than capable of indexing your browsing habits, I rarely type more than "inn" anyway...

Thank you Arantor and Nao for the answers. :)

By the way: I like this way. In fact it is similar in implementation as other things I'm doing on my site.

So I imagine that in "create board" there will be something like a "multi type" thing, where only certain groups will appear in board index?

No... there's a board type to indicate what type of board it is. Appearance is separately controlled (and it's possible to make a board hidden but accessible, or visible but not enterable)

How bout category wide permissions. Currently you have to set each board. Would be convenient for setting a categorys permissions and all the boards inside inherit those permissions unless other wise specified. Im sure a great many would aggree?
