    Installing Multiple Blogs - Possible? Link to this post

    Hey guys,

    I have previously built the website www.armidalestud.com.au on a WP blog platform (designer did it 12mths ago, no idea why).

    I'm wanting to switch it over to Sapphire CMS, but can't figure out how to install multiple blogs.

    If you look on ArmidaleStud.com.au, I need to have blogs for "News", "Stallions" and "Horses for Sale" .... with "News" and "Stallions" blogs both streaming on the homepage (1 in the main content and the other on the right hand panel).

    Any tips on how I can do this?

    Thanks,

    Gavin Mace

    I am pretty sure you should be able to just create multiple 'BlogHolders' in the CMS interface to have separate blogs. I run 4 blogs (off the same 1 install of blog) on 1 site and haven't noticed any major issues.

    How did you do it?
    I like to have 2 different blog-modules with other skills.

    Perhaps you can upload your blog-system ?!

    Thanks 4 your help!

    > How did I do it?

    Just create 2 separate 'Blog Holder' page types in the CMS. Click the create button in the site tree and select blog holder. You now have a another blog.

    I noticed that blackcandy has a blog in the themes folder, on the install instructions they direct one to put it in the root directory. Where does it go? Any clarification would be appreciated.
