I've been reading around a few older indexed posts, but haven't come across exactly what I am looking for (or I'm blind, I'm known for not seeing the forests for the trees :( ).
I'm currently testing a WordPress installation with a bridged phpBB Forum.
Every user logged into the forum gets logged in to WP too, and vice versa. The WP site is intended to run as a CMS, with news, galleries, the usual.
What I'd like to do is every registered user being able to have their own blog in the WP system. As such I'm looking for a plugin or a combination of plugins which can restrict the availability and visibility of categories to 'blogs' only, and every new posted article by the particular user gets added to
while other other categories are not affected by it, so other articles going to news will continue to go to
without having e.g. the admin's username there (mysite.org/news/adminuser/a-news-article)
I came across 'role-scope' earlier and gave it a try, though it does not appear to do what I'm looking for.
Seen role-manager suggested, however the plugin site only lists compatibility to WP2.6.
A multi-site network would probably not work either, since it'll break the phpBB link, which is achieved through a plugin in the mainsite, and as the WP article for networks state, data is not interconnected between multisites.
Any ideas/input/suggestion is appreciated :)
