    Software for creating blogs on intranet server (IIS)

    Hi everyone,

    I have been asked to investigate implementing a system that will allow our students to setup and maintain their own blogs on an internal web server (this is for September). We already have an IIS server setup running an intranet.

    Just wondered if anyone had anything already in place or knew of anything out there that you could recommend We would obviously need multiple blogs running and have some kind of user management, ldap / AD support would be really useful too.

    Thanks

    Most blog software runs on LAMP. You could use Sharepoint? It has AD integration.

    Wordpress or DotNetNuke spring to mind.

    This is one of those things which is really hard to search for - almost anything which searches for "blog" will find you blogs rather than how to make blogs!

    If your going to use sharepoint you should add the Enhanced blogging for SharePoint available at Community Kit for SharePoint - Home

    Another blogging program you can use on IIS is Community Server Community Server

    I'd say sharepoint would be the way to go.

    replaced our intranet with it, too useful for its own good....

    takes some getting set up as you want it, but infinitly expandable

    depends what language you want the app to be written in. You say your using IIS so im assuming your ASP rather than PHP for your intranet? If you are using ASP then take a look down this list ASP Blog Scripts and Components :: Hot Scripts

    If your using PHP then something like wordpress would be a good option. There is an AD plugin which allows you to create accounts for users based on AD WordPress › Active Directory Authentication WordPress Plugins I've not actually tried this, google is your friend......sometimes!

    Thanks very much for all the suggestions and links, much appreciated
    Yes searching for this topic in google does send you round in circles as i found out earlier. I hadnt considered sharepoint at all before now. Thanks again all.

    If you have a VLE you may be able to handle blogs through that. We use Journal LX within Blackboard.

    thanks for the suggestion of the VLE, ours does support it but the teacher involved wants to stay away from it (don't think they like the whole thing too much!!!)

    In Scotland they are rolling out a Nationwide Intranet, based on sharepoint and IIS. Students could have their own blog on this, but it will be upto the LA / School how they use it.
