Hello,

I am trying to modufy and style the blog.aspx page and I cannot find a "create new blog" button" anywhere. In the Monox documentation I cannot neither find a way for a register user to create his own blog. The only thing I can find is the buttons for new post (article) creation and editing of the already created posts. 

The architecture as I understand it is like this:
1. first page (all blog posts with no buttons to create something new) -> 
2. blog post view ->
3. blog info -> blog view (with list of posts)
4.  (if you hit the "settings" button you can change the blog's setting))
but there is nowhere an "add new blog" button

Thank you,
Panos

Hi,

if you were referring to crating a new blog post then please take a look at the following:

/MonoX/ModuleGallery/Blog/BlogContainer.ascx
/MonoX/ModuleGallery/Blog/BlogCategories.ascx
/MonoX/ModuleGallery/Blog/BlogInfo.ascx
/MonoX/ModuleGallery/Blog/BlogList.ascx


Inside the BlogContainer you will find the following WebParts

/MonoX/ModuleGallery/Blog/BlogPostList.ascx
/MonoX/ModuleGallery/Blog/BlogPostEdit.ascx
/MonoX/ModuleGallery/Blog/BlogPostView.ascx
/MonoX/ModuleGallery/Blog/BlogSettings.ascx
/MonoX/ModuleGallery/Blog/BlogCommentsList.ascx


In the BlogPostList WebPart you will find the lnkAddNew which is used to create a new blog post.

If you were referring to creating a new Blog then you should go to MonoX administration -> Blog -> Blog Settings (/MonoX/Admin/BlogSettingsManager.aspx). There you can open a new blog and manage blog settings.

Regards

Thanks a lot Khorvat! I was reffering to the second.

I just thought that all members were able to create new blogs from the beginning, thats why I got confused.
As a matter of fact, would that be good to have as an option?

Thanks for everything,
Panos

That feature is not included by default. You could achieve that, but it requires you to do some programming.
