Mamblog is a component for Mambo 188.8.131.52 and Joomla 1.0.x
Mamblog requires PHP4 or above.
- Users can create a new blog item.
- Users can edit their own blog items.
- Items can be set to published, unpublished or archived.
- Archived items won't be listed in the main listing when showing blogs from the user, but only as linked titles when viewing a users archived blogs.
- Some appearence properties can be set, among these: text color, background color, border width (sets a border around the text), border color etc. Each of these can be disallowed in the configuration for the component.
- Item can be set to appear on the "frontpage", which means the item will show up on the frontpage of the site. This is configurable.
- Users can set if they want others to be able to comment on the blog item as well as setting if the comments should be publically shown. N.B. No internal comment system available at this moment.
- It is possible to list a single blog item, all published blogs by a user, all archived blogs from a user, all blogs on a given date, all blogs set to be shown on the frontpage and all blogs by all users. All of these lists conform to show only the amount of complete items and linked items that has been set by the admin, just as the Mambo frontpage.
