Is it possible to create a blog where just specific user groups can post?

As said, you can create a company page and write company blog from pages. You can edit the blog permissions to admin only.. Go to "Edit Pages" - Permissions:

- Who can share blogs "Admin only"
- Who can view blogs "Anyone" or "Members only" ***

Go to admincp - App - Blog - Setting - Display blogs that created in Pages to Blogs app "Yes"

- Create new blog category, such as "Business News"

You can then create a menu for your company page from admincp - Menu. Example "company news"

*** If you choose "Members Only", a member must "like" the page before they can read the blog. I do not know if this is a bug or it should be that way :) Hope it helps..

Maybe this is the problem.

I use CKEditor and it says that I have to allow HTML. It is allowed in the settings.

In the app "blog" - user group settings - "Groups" registered user

- Can view blogs? "YES"
- Can edit their own blogs? "YES"
- Can delete their own blogs? "YES"
- Can add a new blog? "YES"

Guests only: - Can view blogs? "Yes" or "NO"

If this does not work, try disabling purchased / free apps you have installed and try again. Not disabling default apps. Maybe there are others here on the forum that have some tips?

I just have settings, edit categories and add category.

- Search for "Blog"

- Get it

This is the new version

I don't get it with these blogs. In Wordpress I have a Blog with the category e.g. "Business". And in this category I can write different articles.

Can't do this in PHPFox. I just can create one blog after the other.

Yes, PHPFOX have something to learn, but sure it will be good in the end For example, blog archive where each user should have their own archive .. Maybe the phpfox team or others can comment on this thread?

I can't understand clearly your problem with writing blog. Can you explain more?

I have to open this thread again.

Is it still not possible?

E.g. I have a category "kitchen". In this category I make a blog "Best pancake recipes". And in this blog I want to write articles.
