Linked Blogs -- How exactly do they work?

Posted 07 February 2014 - 07:48 AM

I want to start a regular blog but have a dilemma. DIC blog or my own blog? Maybe I can have the best of both worlds with a linked blog. There are some specifics I'd like to check first...

  • Does the full text appear on DIC?
  • Do comments on the DIC side get posted to my blog?
  • Do comments from the external blog get posten on DIC
  • I'll be promoting my blog on DZone. Will we run into trouble if DIC promotes the DIC view of my blog?
  • Can I make some posts that don't show on DIC?
  • Can I make some posts that only show on DIC?


Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I generally don't post blogs on DZone. I generally plug tutorials, so this won't be an issue.

I don't know specifically how it works, as I've never used it. I will dig through the IPB documentation and see what answers I can come up with, though.

cfoley- My apologies for taking so long to get back to you. It completely slipped my mind. Anyways, I just did some digging, and the IPB Blog documentation isn't very helpful or thorough. I would imagine you could pick and choose entries to feature here, but I do not know. There is an RSS feed reader on the IPB blog system to import entries. The full text will appear on DIC, but I couldn't find a clear answer for 2-3. Sorry for the delay in my response, and sorry I can't be of more help on this.

That's OK. Thanks for getting back to me.

I've decided that in order to evaluate a blogging platform and hosting, I need a bank of articles ready to go. I want to be able to put a couple up immediately and a few backup articles so I can keep the blog active once a month even if I'm not actively writing. It'll take me a while to get that together.

Thanks for the info and don't worry about questions 2 and 3. You've answered all the important ones anyway.

Edit: Congratulations on 10k rep too!
