Do I need WordPress or WordPress MU?

    I’m new to WordPress and BuddyPress and am building a community site that will allow users to post articles/journal entries, compile a list of saved/favorite articles from other users, form groups, etc. I’m assuming that users having the ability to post articles is essentially the same as giving each user his/her own blog. Though I know BuddyPress can run on standard WordPress, would I need WordPress MU to provide that functionality? Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

    It depends if you want your users to have individual blogs (like WordPress.com).

    If not, stick with standard WP and give your new users a role of Contributor or higher so they can post on your WP site.

    Thanks, r-a-y! I definitely want there to be a blog that’s exclusively the main site’s, and then for community members to have their own “journals” so to speak (similar to the way that Tasty Kitchen – tastykitchen.com – allows users to post recipes within their own “recipe boxes”). I’m guessing that’s more like them having their own individual blogs? I’m sorry for the lack of knowledge; this world is all new to me!

    If you want that, then you’ll need wordpressMU.
