[Resolved] Possibility of using BP to create unique community blogging site

    Hello WordPress Support!

    Brand new to WP here. I am a private writing tutor and want to create a website where my students can have their own blog and receive my feedback on their blog posts.

    There will be a set number of pre-registered users (students). Each user will have their own blog and profile. As the admin, I will be able to comment on each user’s blog post, and most importantly edit their profile. I will not have a blog myself.

    But here’s the tricky part: Each user’s blog will be hidden to other users in the community (i.e. users cannot communicate with, see each other, or even know other users exist). Only the admin will have the privilege of viewing profiles or commenting on users’ blog posts.

    Any suggestions for plugins?

    Thanks!

    @bg01 As I see it, you don’t even need BuddyPress especially with the configuration you posted above.
    - Just create a network (go multisite)
    - allow students to create own blogs or create the blogs yourself and add student/user per blog
    - make all sites private (Super Admin can see anything and everything)
    - post comment on each student’s blog post.
    If you have any issues with your multisite installation, please post at http://wordpress.org/support/forum/multisite

    Alternatively, you can have one single WP site. Make it private, no feeds. Set access of all posts in front end and back end to Site Admin and respective post Author in custom WP theme. Only Site Admin can post comment in all posts.
