Multiple Authors question

  • I’m trying to decide which software route to go for 1 or more blogs I may be setting up. A feature that is desired is the “user diary” feature of Scoop. Scoop looks to be a bit beyond me. Is the Multiple Authors option WP has a potentially similar thing. Can I assign posting priveleges to some/all users but have their posts pubished on another page?

  • Is the Multiple Authors option WP has a potentially similar thing.

    Same, but different. There is no “user diary” component per se to be found in WordPress. Each author would have the same posting privileges for the blog.

    Can I assign posting priveleges to some/all users but have their posts pubished on another page?

    That all depends on what you mean by “another page.” First, WordPress does allow for different privileges based on the user role assigned. More on that can be found here:

    As for this different page thing, you could restrict posting to a specific category for authors using a plugin like:

    http://redalt.com/Resources/Plugins/Limit+Categories

    and then remove that category from your main blog page.

    Hello SammyMaudlin, I am in a similar situation trying to decide the right software for my new sites… WordPress is awesome, but when you want Scoop functionality I’d say take a look at Drupal. Drupal is not nearly as friendly as WordPress, but the power to do the journal thing and just about anything you want is there, check it out.
