    Hi guys,

    I am back to Buddypress :)!!! well i want to make a blog that is similar to there on

    “buddypress.org/blog”

    where users who are registered across the website will be able to post and their own posts will be shown in their “Blog tab” in their own profile.
    Basically i want a global blog where all the site users can post.

    Regards,
    Sam.

    There are several routes to do this – it depends how complex you want the interface to be.

    Your simplest option – in your /wp-admin: set the default user role to ‘contributor’ or ‘author’ in Super Admin – Options – Dashboard User Default Role

    They’ll then be able to contribute posts to the main blog.

    Under their blog tab – you can write a custom post loop that fetches posts where they are the author.

    Hi Roger,

    Thanks for quick response as always :)!!!

    1. Well do they get a blog when they create a new account? If i have turned off site registration.

    2. If not then how would they write their own blog posts?

    The solution to this is “sitewide tags” as my best friend “Andrea” suggested. I can get all users posts in one blog. Keeping their individual blogs seperated.

    The solution given by you is simple one. Can you please suggest me the complex way as well ?

    Regards,
    Sam.
