People keep referring to turning certain components off, but as far as I can tell — by searching these forums and by muddling through the admin — there is no way to just “turn off” blogs so that the blog option disappears. Vanishes. As in there is no clicking on create a blog only to get a “blogs have been disabled” message. That just looks messy and like a mistake.
Maybe I’m wrong? I’d love it if I am.
