I’m not entirely comfortable with a HABTM relationship between
articles and blogs. I’m more inclined to think in terms of a blog
having many articles, if only because it makes the interface and
access control issues substantially easier to deal with. I think you
might be better off with using categories to seperate subblogs, but
I’m open to being convinced otherwise.
I’ll take that up. I want to offer a different point of view.
I run two blogs at one hosting provider. They are actually subdomains,
that that’s beside the point - unless you note that I can create more
subdomains (and hence more blogs!) for close to zero cost.
I’d like to run one code-base without having to do ‘fiddles’ like
symlink-ing almost everything except /config, and /public. Certainly
multi-blog support based on the URL would be great … but
Well, the separate /public means I can have different favicons and
/files - the former is pretty near a requirement and the latter is very
convenient when the blog themes differ.
But certainly sharing a positing between blogs is of little value when
blogs have different subject-themes. Even if the have the same
the different themes would mean different postings.
If you know of a way to make it simple with symlink-ing or with the
code-base, please do let me know. Otherwise I’d welcome true multi-blog
support. Please note the operative word - TRUE, not a hack that needs
hand crafting and crufting.
