Blogging Question

Hi,
we were wondering if there was a way to have each user keep their own blog, and maybe have it stay contained to their profile? we have tried Wordpress and Popnupblog, and they all write to one blog page.

So basically, if someone clicks on another user's profile, they can see that person's blogs ONLY and not a list of a whole bunch of blogs by different people.

thanks

Re: Blogging Question

Wordpress does do this. When a person clicks to read a blog they can see the Author's name or user id up in top with title, category: specifically filed under: (some)Category Name - (some)author. If you hover over the author's name you will see that it is for clicking on and viewing all other posts by that person/user.

Additionally, there is a block in Wordpress which allows you to show Wordpress Authors. If you set this block to show on the Blog Page then you will have a list of Blog Authors/Posters and all one has to do to see all their posts is to click on their name. Edit the block to set the count of how many authors/posters you want to show in the block.

Hope this helps,
Quest

XoopsLifeType.1.0.2.RC promised this functionality, but I've never been able to get it to work. Link to dev site (xoops china).
