Support » Fixing WordPress » Intranet Blog: Admin user, reader user, comment feature

  • The company I’m working for is thinking of running WP on our Intranet so that our company can have a blog only seen by its employees.
    I have been looking for information these past few weeks. I have an understanding of how WP works as a blog, but I know nothing about how WP works or looks for a user on an Intranet server. A lot of the questions the IT program manager and I were not solid on is how WP works for the admin user and the reader user within the Intranet server.

    Are the different user roles created within the Intranet server?
    Is Each user assigned their account? I think this is a yes.
    Does the user have to have a WP account (as in go to WP.com and register)?

    We wanted the readers of the Intranet Blog to not have to worry about signing in or to have to create a user profile just to comment.
    Maybe it’s obvious, but just to confirm: do you have to have your reader log on just to comment so their identity is known? And if so, does the Admin add them as users on our server? They don’t have to have a WP account, right?

    I’ve read through and packed a lot of info in a short amount of time to get this Intranet blog rolling. I’m sure I’ve overlooked the answers to these questions. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

  • No, they don’t have to have a wp.com or wp.org account, nor do they have to sign in just to comment.

    WP doesn’t care if you’re on the Web or on an Intranet, as long as your server can resolve the URLs.

    Thanks Scribu. Appreciate it. 🙂
