    I am very new to blogging and have created a very simple blog. I am sharing this blog with 2 other authors and have created a separate page for each.

    The problem is that each time they try to add a post on their page, it appears on the main page. They are using different login information, but it still does not work.
    Is there a way for us to post to our individual pages, or am I doing this wrong?

    Thanks in advance,

    Mike

    It is possible, but will require you to modify your theme's template pages. http://codex.wordpress.org/Working_with_WordPress
    might be a good starting point. Basically what you will be looking to do if you don't want the other author's on the main page is to exclude them from the index.php, or write a home.php template to do such. You'll then need to create templates for each specific author's posts.
    I've personally not worked on a blog with multi-authors, so once you've read over some of the documentation, and perused some of the plugins http://www.wp-plugins.net/
    come back to the forums and ask specific questions regarding your goal - ie, not like the current thread :)

    I think you have a little work cut out for you as WordPress is normally designed to display all posts, regardless of Author on the main page.

    You should begin by getting conversant with The Loop, The Loop in Action, Author_Templates, and Template_Hierarchy.

    There might be a plugin that helps with this:
    Plugins/Restriction
    Plugins/Posts_Miscellaneous

    Thank you both for your input. I will try my best to find a solution and share it with others once I do.
