Useful BP and non-MU BP feature: list outside blogs
This is a suggestion for a feature that strikes me as obviously useful for both regular BP and, especially, the upcoming non-MU BP. As far as I can tell from testbp.org, my suggestion is not yet possible.
There should be a way to allow users, both during account setup and later via account settings, to specify outside blogs as theirs, either instead of or alongside blogs they create within that BP installation.
I think this will be useful because most people may be willing to participate in a BP-based social network but will want to be associated with their existing blogs elsewhere, rather than a blog within that network which they may not have time to maintain. Being able, within their profile, to indicate their “real” blog elsewhere will increase the incentive to be active within the social network, driving attention to their blog.
This would also be particularly useful for the suggested non-MU version of BP because, obviously, that will be unable to provide blogs to each member, being able to list outside blogs is simply going to be a must.
