WordPress MU 2.8.1 Blogs

  • gyonis



    I’m using WordPress MU 2.8.1 (w/ BuddyPress installed) to build a social networking site. What I want to do is:

    1. Remove the blogs for user, i.e. only one blog in the whole site, created by the admin, any registered user can create a post on it, but they can’t create their own blogs.

    2. Customize the post page fields, instead of just title and body, I want to have 5 text fields, including one drop down menu for user to choose their country.

    Any help would be appreciated, even a link to get me started.

    Thanks in advanced..

    P.S. I have searched the forum, found slightly similar question, but not exactly what I’m trying to do here.

  • The reason you have not found much on this on these forums, is because this questions are in WPMU’s domain. Have a search on their forums as these components aren’t provided or controlled by BuddyPress.



    Hey gyonis,

    For #1:

    You’ll want to turn off blog registration and also set the default user role in WPMU to be “author”; that way everyone will be able to make a post on the root blog.

    You can do this by going into your WPMU admin area and navigating to “Site Admin > Options”. Set “Allow New Registrations” to “Only user account can be created”. And set “Dashboard User Default Role” to “Author”.

    For #2:

    You’ll want to use some type of customized post screen plugin such as Flutter or my personal favorite Custom Field Template.

    That should get you going!
