    Blog Owners and Blog Management permission issues Link to this post

    Hi team,

    I'm trying to get my head around what the Blog Owner setting actually does in a Blog Holder.

    Surely the only person who can manage a particular Blog (Holder) would be the person set as the Blog Owner? However I am finding that anyone with Blog Management permissions is able to manage any Blog, post to any Blog, etc, whether they are the Owner or not.

    I would expect this to be the case only when Blog Owner is set to None, but having Blog Owner set to None doesn't seem to change anything. Therefore, what is the purpose of having a Blog Owner?

    This makes for a very insecure system where, if I have multiple bloggers running their own blogs, they can all post to each others Blogs any time they want!

    Can someone please shed some light on this for me?

    I also am struggling with this issue. I'm building a site with multiple blog holders and need to resolve this problem. (Multiple BlogHolders http://www.silverstripe.org/blog-module-forum/show/19469) If you find a solution please post it.

    Thanks, Shelly
