    Currerntly checking the River addon. I just don't like the Idea of third party forum bridge. I also don't wan't my members to have personal blogs, I may disable the blog pluging and use blogger instead. Thanks for your suggestions. view reply

    Hello mates, let me start by thanking the dev team. Elgg is great. I have been researching for sometime now a platform to use in developing my choice social network/groupware. I have tested many platforms including the paid ones but I finally chose...
    • Ok for this answer I would grealty recommend that you check river add on by Per Jensen or river 3c, That way you would make customizations to the activity page including the ability to post from the activity page. Here is the link http://community.elgg.org/plugins/825625/2013.09.04/river-addon and then better guide your users on how to create discussions. If you need a full traditional forum then try the fluxbb forum bridge script that was developed by Team Webgalli. It is a commercial product but well worth the money if you truly need a forum.

       

      Another option would be to use the elgg vanilla bridge but that is hard to configure at times. It is free. As for having you as the only blogger (admin). I am not too sure but would greatly recommend that you set a navigation tab to your official blog and allow your users to blog too. Anyway thats my two cents worth of opinion. Hope it helps

    • You could use the roles plugin to disable blogging to anyone but admins and moderators for example
