I'm looking for a blog server that will allow me to restrict access to certain blogs, typically by department membership for internal blogs but we also want to limit access to some of our public blog servers based on the level of support that our customers have purchased. Does Typo support that? Many thanks! rjsjr

Sounds more like a job for access control (e.g. in Apache) than a job for a webapp. TX

Or a full-blown CMS! I don't think Typo (or, indeed, most blogging engines) could be easily modified to do this. Maybe look at Drupal, Joomla, or something like that?

And this does not only work for complete blogs, my config file e.g. contains this: auth.require = ( "/pages/member" => ( "method" => "digest", "realm" => "download archiv", "require" => "valid-user" ) ) That way, I can have parts of the blog that are public and some "member"-pages; all pages beginning with "member" (e.g. member- overview, member-details etc.) are only accessible for logged in users.

You're looking for the similarly named Typo3 from typo3.com We use that on a LAMP system for allowing department membership based on Active Directory memberships. It has all sorts of plugins for inserting into the pages, including blogs.

Drupal does what you want with organic groups. I am using it on another each use has their own blog and then by groups you can control access to the various blogs. Users can belong to none or many groups. -Linda

Is there a way in Drupal to have a group blog that all those people have access to and only those people? Do they have any Wiki plugins?
