I'm thinking about setting up a blog to run along side our school website, with the idea that pupils and staff :D can update frequent events in school, almost as they happen.
Ideally I want a blog that is free, can only be updated from within school - so I haven't got pupils randomly updating from home, and to have the comments facility restricted. Any suggestions?
If you are using Joomla for your website, you can do it already - just don't automatically publish posts.
You could also install something like Wordpress - modules are available to integrate with Joomla if you want to do that.
We're just getting into this now, going to be using Joomla I think. We're not going to be offering public blogs to all, but certain staff/students/groups that we think would have something useful to tell the World.
We're also playing with Mahara, I expect we'll end up with blogs for all through that or Wordpress (with restricted access) with just the higher profile stuff on the main Joomla site.
