I may not be following b/c I’m not so php literate, but my goal is to not only have my posts on the frontpage, it’s other authors as well. And this gives me the ability to front-page member blog posts by selecting the category “features.”
By “add blog” I mean add blog posts, not an entirely new blog, if it makes a difference. I’m just allowing people to write a new post.
I’m not sure why this isn’t scalable for a larger community.
So long as people join the group associated with the main site, they’re able to add blogs to the site. I make everyone a contributor so their blogs aren’t published automatically and I can then add them to the category – Member Blogs.
