I am looking to incorporate a blog within my website that allows both public entries as well as password protected ones. I am currently using greymatter, which as far as I know does not allow this. Does anybody know if this can be done? And if not does anyone know of a similar alternative to greymatter that can do this?

Hi chlazzaro177,

I'm not too sure just what you mean by 'public entries' so does that mean that you want to let anonymous people just drop in and post comments to your blog?

If that's your intent you might want to reconsider doing that. I've ran across several websites that had comment sections that had been for public use disabled because of the high volume of spam that they had received.

I think password protected would be the best way to go.

That's my .02

Well I wanted to make it so some blogs are public and some blogs you have to type in the password to view it.

Hi chlazzaro177,

Check out http://www.mindsay.com and see if their setup is what you're looking for. I know if you have an account there you can set your blog to be viewable by anyone, however, to leave a comment to any post on that site you have to have an account.

OK, after you start an account on that blog you can sign people up as friends to the blog that you have. then you put them into different categories. With me so far?

Then when ever you put up a post all you have to do is make that post viewable to everyone if you want everyone to see it, or just to one class of friends if you want to limit who gets to see it. The friends that you want to see the private posts will still have to sign in to view your 'private' posts and comment on a post though.

Hope I said all of that so that it makes sense. Anyway check em out and see if there might be anything you can use.

Good luck,

Wendy
