Do you mean restrict who can create a weblog? Unlike the previous mod, all users are automatically allowed to create a simple weblog. Administrators CAN ban users from creating a weblog if needed.
I am planning on having only an invited group of people have the ability to create blogs. This feature would be of most value to me. 8)

Picture Uploading and Trackbacks have been completed and already implemented on my demo site (there are still a few things to work out, however it's fully functional). Feel free to try them out, and please, do not abuse either feature.

That just about concludes the major features that I wish include in the final version, except for of course "restricted creation based on usergroup".

Pretty much set for the mid-late december release date, for the beta (despite my exams being in less than a week!).

There will be an uninstall script and an upgrade script once I get around to writing them (after the beta release). For now, the database tables are named differently so both mods can actually coexist!

He upgraded to phpbb 2.0.11 and didn't do the SQL update apparently.

I did update the demo board to 2.0.11, however my offline development board was still 2.0.10, and I ended up replacing some of the files I modified for 2.0.11 :?

Should be ok now.

What is the difference between the trackback and permalink feature?

When adding a new blog entry, what is the excerpt feature?

Can anyone explain this to me "Use these forms to send trackback pings to other entries on other Blog sytems."? Is there some kind of instructions on the net somewhere that explains how this feature works?

Thanks.

I posted this on my demo board:
Trackback was designed so that weblogs on different sites (or perhaps even the same site) can tell each other that they are writing about their blog.

For example, Blog A has just written an entry. The owner of Blog B finds that entry interesting, and subsequently writes an entry in his own blog, about Blog A's entry. Then, while posting his entry on Blog A, he sends out Trackback pings, which let Blog A know that Blog B has something written on Blog A's entry.

This kind of like remote commenting, only with the intent of providing a list of links to blogs talking about a particular entry.

Here's the page by the creators of Trackback, MoveableType (who also have their own weblog software).

Looks good

Looks pretty good. One thing that would be a great ad to it is having user's blog like www.mysite.com/thisisusersname/. It would a lot easier to tell friends about.

Want this Mod Immediately

Post by Azoomba »

I want to host some kind of blog on my phpbb site urgently. I have been searching for phpbb blogs since some time and I found this blog. It's very flexible and powerful.

I could not wait till december end and I would be very glad if you could give me the mod so that I can use this immdly in my site. I thought that the development to host the blogs is done and there are not many bugs in this. Please send the mod to me as soon as possible.

better get this done soon so phpbb-ers can ride on the coattails of the Spaces.MSN.com weblog system. It'd be nice to show my users they can use the forums for their blogging, not Micro$oft. :D

You the man. Keep up the hard work.

That will depend on your server. If it's an Apache server (which it mostly is), then you could use mod_rewrite to translate urls in the form http://www.mysite.com/username/ to http://www.mysite.com/weblog.php?u=username. There's a bunch of things to read about it on the web, but I don't have time right now. First thing first is to release this mod. :-D

You'll have to wait, because I've only just completed most of the features. I still have to "tighten a few loose screws".

No worries :-D. Thanks for the compliments!
