the closest I ever got was to write a script that took info from a certain forum and displayed it as a blog-like page

There's really no difference between a blog and any of the ubbnews apps in basic function. Both would have their strong points in use as a blog smile

If you're into movable type, there's a new planet movabletype that aggregates information from all sites dealing with movable type development (plugins, styles, etc.)

My personal about Blog's: waste of time and hype topic.

I see this is a thing used by internet user from specific countrys. Here in Germany it's not a big topic. If you ask someone some people knows what a Blog is but few people use one.

I dont use one.

fwiw - i've recently changed my mind about blogs, atleast in regards to putting them too good use in non-traditional way (for-business-purposes rather than for the usual personal 'me-generation' journal type thing)

my first blog venture was for a website customer that wanted a way to post sales & inventory related announcements easily without my help http://tankdr.blogspot.com

that went over so well, i sat back and seriously thought about non-traditional uses for a blog, and came up with a great idea for my ubb site... one big downside of a messageboard is that valueable info in a chatty community can get drowned out and scattered around. and since my community isnt real techy savvy, lots of folks said they couldnt find something after it faded abit. for us - that was key race event info.

so we started a "race blog" for the current race season where it's like a showcase catalog of race reports and links to all the important stuff related to a given event.

http://dballey.blogspot.com/

and we're using a couple of 3rd party moblogging (mobile blogging) services so that race reporters can post stuff on the blog right from the race. i was a lil scared this would be abit too newfangled for folks to take an instant liking too but i was wrong -> response has been fantastic!! and the racers love it cuz they point their sponsors to simple lowfat one-stop-shopping place to see just what the sponsor wants to know -> race event info.

finding ways to tie the two sites together (forums & blog) was kind of fun. i reused abunch of stuff from the sidebar in my ubb on the blog sidebar. plus i have a scheduled task to grab the blog's feed every half hour and automagically show a lil "blog last updated" block with most recent datetimestamp on the my ubb sidebar. all this is just KISS integration, but i'm stewing up a couple of ideas for a custom mod that would do much fancier tricks.

You know, i WAS going to setup my server to have PHP4 run as a fastcgi module for compatability with older scripts; but I figured that i'd be safe just saying screw it...

I only had one compatability issue, but that got cleared up in about 20 minutes lol

Fastcgi has too little usage afaict tipsy and it's not in active development (I guess). But, anyway... You must support an interface if it is not *really* dead smile

Wow... that looks great. I especially like the real-time preview pane!

this is the closest i've gotten: blog sample

i've had my blog integrated with my forums for... bout 6 years now. its not perfect, and doesn't have all the functionality of traditional blogs (comments, for example), but its really come closer through the past few years.

i've tweaked the news article mod, the IIP sidebar mod, through in some content islands (some, manually updated), and a few other goodies.

i'd love to continue moving it towards more traditional bloggy features and attributes. for example, right now, i have the "blog" divided by monthly threads. that means on day 1 of the new month, events from the previous day / week are instantly "archived", which often splits the flow of thought/conversation.

but... this is just about as far as i can go on limited brain power smile

i'm a wordpress fan and especially likin the _mu (multi user) version hey have (all free too ! )

if i had to integrate a blog into a forum, where selected user groups have their own blog, i'd go with WP..

i believe harvard uses it for their students.. ie: student.harvard.com or whatever..

so the integration with my forum would be username.sirdude.com or could also be sirdude.com/blogs/username i guess.

the key would be to share the DB's and as much of the styling as possible..

I really wanted to use MU, but I can't... They FORCE you to not use www urls; and with how I like how I have things setup I need them; I tried to weed them out through their coding, and i b0ged something...

Yeh, I challange you!

I want to be able to set my url as:
http://www.undergroundnews.com/blogs/

And have it so members blogs are contained within, such as:
http://www.undergroundnews.com/blogs/gizmo/

get me conformity, and I'll love you :nods:...

they USED to just have it so the .htaccess file would redirect you to "non-www" urls, but they found out that users where "easily" defeating it, so they integrated it into the installer several ways as well as numerous areas throughout the script...

The problem here is, I force my users to use www urls; so when i hit these "nonwww" urls, they get redirected to the www, which redirects back... so problems arise where it times out lol...

BTW, I totally agree with "approving" and "recommending" standards; but forcing them down your users throat is crazy...

I've heard of many reasons many people use "www", and a main one being when univ's or org's use www for their internet and non-www for their intranet...

Allen true... there was always something about MT that i didn't like and i guess it's because i was finnicky ? :shrug:

But when i was in my 'read 100 blogs a day' mode, i saw a noticeable trend where users were moving away from MT to WP...

It could just be that i wasn't giving MT a fighting chance though..

The reason a lot moved from MT to Wp was that MT changed their licensing a while back (v3?) and began charging for the product - this created an uproar (the NERVE someone would want to make a living at what they're good at and had been giving away for years smash ). MT backed down and still offer it for free for non-commercial use, but a good number had already left by then...

Plus, it's still mostly perl, which isn't seen as cOoL by those who wanted php and now want ruby tipsy

I don't know that it's that difficult - it's really nothing more than a personal forum where one member can start new posts and others can reply - toss in some template changes and rename a few files and voila!
