Blog 2.1 introduces user-blogs, a personalized blog covering a topic of your choice. Given the permissions users may create several own blogs each dedicated to different aspects and subjects. Users are given the choice to control the visibility of their blogs based on a set of different access levels, for example restrict a blog to be accessible by users they're following only. It is worth noting that moderators can be given the right to override these restrictions to allow checks for questionable content.
Users are given the choice to add additional authors, where each of them can actively participate in this blog by writing or editing articles.
Better Insight and Interaction
Each blog is granted an own overview page showing articles within this blog and listing participating authors. The sidebar contains a new archive box which groups articles by year and month.
Your users can subscribe to each blog, causing them to be notified whenever a new article is published.
Highlight Featured Blogs
The global blog page will feature a short list of user blogs, prioritizing blogs marked as "Featured" by a moderator. Right below is a button leading to a list of all user blogs with the ability to filter them by arbitrary criteria.
