Simple common blog on the home page

    I want users to be able to post blog entries as soon as they’re registered, and for those entries to appear in their entirely (at least if they’re no longer than a few column-inches) in a common blog that is the most prominent part of the home page.

    Can anyone help guide me to the configuration settings, widgets, and plugins to accomplish this? Would this require custom code?

    Thanks in advance.

    one starting point is to check out the Group Blog plugin by Burt Adsit, because BP will not automatically add your users to a group blog otherwise.

    quickpost form in the theme would be helpful – you can hack the posthaste plugin, use TDO Mini Forms, or wait for the BP “quickpost” function that I have heard is coming.

    Very helpful! Would that be the “Community Blog” plugin by Burt Adsit? And the Quick Post Widget looks good at first glance — is there an advantage to some of the others that you mention? Thanks a lot.
