Demo - FAQ - Documentation - Tracker - Forum


Mamblog is a component for Mambo and Joomla 1.0.x
Mamblog requires PHP4 or above.

Current functionality

  • 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  • Items can be set to published, unpublished or archived.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.
  • The admin can define which type of blogs should be shown on the blog frontpage.
  • The script uses the content table in Mambo for all data.
  • Completely automatical installation.
  • Configurable whether new blog items need to be admin approved before shown on the site.
  • Users can archive and unpublish their blogs.
  • When adding/editing a blog item the user can set access restrictions for who can read the blog. Public, Members or Private.
  • The admin can configure which extra attributes of blogs users should be able to edit.
  • All config options changeable by an easy to use admin interface.
  • Admin configurable if all users or only special users should be able to edit/create blogs.
  • Multiple language files included: English, Swedish, Norwegian and Dutch.
  • AkoComments and ComboLITE/ComboMAX comment systems supported.
  • Supports all html editors supported by Mambo.
  • Users can delete their own blog entries.
  • User menu item to the users' own blog.
  • Supports SEF links on all frontend links.
  • Support for the SEF Advance script from Emir Sakic.


  • When viewing a blog item there should be some sort of TrackBack link. I will have to investigate this further.

Possible extras for the future:

  • A module to list the latest x blog items.
  • A module to list the newest bloggers.
  • Module to search bloggers.
  • Module to jump to the page of a given blogger.
  • Calendar module with links to all blogs of each day.
  • Latest blogs of a randomized user.
  • Let users create categories for their blogs.
  • Connect links to categories.
  • User selectable templates or preselected values for the colors etc.

It's a headache for me but maybe someone knows the answer.

For some reason, when we go to the blog component, all the texts appear without formatting and with no linebreak.

Same thing if we click on "list all entries"

However when we click on a title, then we see one single article and it is well formatted. I have tested with 3 different joomla templates and i get the same problem. Is it normal ? It's kinda uggly.

Because of that, i would prefer to get only a list of the titles + date and authors when we list all entries. Which php file should I modify in order to do that ? Or is there any way to do that ?

THank you .

There seems to be a problem. I can't get it to work. Is there a planned update of Mamblog? I was planning to use mamblog as a part of joomla and Community Builder.

Thanks for your time.
-2 #55 Jorge 2007-10-10 15:41
Still, no updates regarding include images in the blog/posts?
-2 #54 youareright 2007-10-08 01:19
Is it possible to make mamblog a multi-categorized component? That is, users can submit articles to different categories.

I don`t have the intro text editor, just the main text, so when I publish it, there is just the blog title and to see the text i have to click Read more button. It looks silly, title without text on front page. Any idea how to switch it on?

Quoting Allen Taylor:
I can't figure out what is wrong with my formatting. Why does my blog editor show posts in the correct format but on the face of my site it all runs together?

I have exactly the same problem! Not sure how to resolve it.
-2 #51 Thomas 2007-08-19 19:52
If you write into Main Text, then you maybe see it, leave the intro text blank :confused:
-2 #50 Thomas 2007-08-19 19:49
Please switch the input of a Blog from Intro Text to Main Text. So the Admin could modify the text if necessary. Add this to your ToSo-List please.

I like it a lot.
-2 #48 jaikaiman 2007-08-03 00:32
I know this has been mentioned, but I thought I would mention it again. The ability to post images is not present within mamblog (despite the option yes/no). This would be a very big factor if you could. No one wants to read pages full of just text!

Hey, what i am doing wrong?

Cannot see the entry form to post messages on my page. But there is not much info about anything re. the configuration. Don't know what i am doing wrong

Is there a time in the forseeable future that your system would work with mambots such as Jos_Replace?

Thanks for informing me of the issue, I'll make sure it's changed in the next release.
-2 #41 Marcus 2007-01-16 11:57
Well, following text should be rephrased since user are very confused about this option:

DEFINE('_ACCESS_USER', 'Creator and Admins only');

instead of


Because users might think that the article is confidential and cannot be read be an admin. Since Mamblog uses "Special" attributes for this "Creator and Special Users" is correct (I use Admins since a "normal" user does not know anything about Joomla's right management).

You can upload images to blog. Just use WysiwygPro Editor and give registered userto see option to upload image to his directory (admin can finalize this)
