how to totally disable User-Blogs ?

  • abcde666


    sorry if this has been asked before, but I could not find it:

    Is there a way to completely disable “User-Blogs”-function from my BP-website ?

    So that Users are NOT able to write their own Blog ?

    So I do not want to have the “Blogs”-page.

    Also, that “Blogs” does not show-up within the “Global Activities”, etc.

    So totally switching off this feature from the website.

    Will there be any negative implications (technically) when doing so ?

    Appreciate your help !

  • This is a WPMU setting, not BuddyPress. I’m marking this thread as not a support issue as it doesn’t relate to BuddyPress.

    I believe there is a setting in the WP Admin, Site Admin -> Options page.

    You can disable user blog creation in WPMU but the BuddyPress directory page for “blogs” and the “blogs” link in the BuddyPress user profiles will still show up… unless you create your own templates to override the parent… or maybe just use some CSS (if possible) to hide those links.

    Hm. Hope it’s attainable for me to do this. I’ll igve buddypress a try and report back how i did it – if i did it.



    Is this possible?

    I have just installed BP 123 on WP MU and I have realised that my club website doesnt need multiple blogs, it just needs a single blog with users able to add posts, much like the BP test site?

    Can this be done without me un-installing WP-MU and reinstalling plain WP?






    Login to the WPMU backend, navigate to “BuddyPress > Component Setup”, disable blog tracking.

    Then disable blog registration.

    Navigate to “Site Admin > Options”. Under “Allow new registrations”, select “Only user account can be created”.
