Can users set up their own blog through WordPress? (4 posts)

    Thank you for developing WordPress and for making it available to the public. I would like to set this blog up at my church website (hosting it) and allow kids in the church to set up their own personal blog. Is that possible with WordPress? How? I figure I could create a catagory for each kid but I want to give the kids the control over that so that they are able to instantly create it and start blogging. Any help or information would be appreciated.

    Unfortunately, WP does not do multiple blogs. You could try your suggestion of just letting each kid having their own category; but with the way WP's security is designed, the kids would be able to edit each others posts and add posts to each others categories.

    for something like this a site like http://xanga.com might be better and then you can do a blog ring for all of the kids ...
    or you can hack and whack a bit so that you can only post to your own category I suppose

    It is possible to run multiple installs of WordPress on one database, although it's not true multi-site in the technical sense.
