Blog Viewing Permission Problem ?

My account is an admin account. I created a couple member accounts for testing.
They were set as "beginner","regular" and a "custom" user group.

Using the member account under custom, I created some blog entries.
I went to the members page, clicked on current member name and tried to view the blog entries I made.
The page said "No entries at this time". I thought maybe the blog creation process failed.

I logged in under my administrator account, went to the members page, clicked on the
member name I had just used, and tried to view the blogs. They displayed just fine.

I logged in as a regular member account and tried to view the blogs again.
"No entries at this time".

I figure this must be some kind of permissions problem because the admin can see the users blog posts,
but not anybody else, including the creator of the blog posts.

Does anyone know what the setting is and where it is ?

I am currently checking the permission tree as well as privelages settings….

Check that high-visibility settings are set for the user groups in Global Privileges. Also make sure that the permissions are set properly for news categories (blogs are just dressed-up news categories/posts).

Hope that help.

Hi Bob, thanks for the reply. It is helpful.

Actually, I forgot that non-administrator (blog) posts need to be validated, under the current settings.
After I did that, the test blogs were visible to all test members.
I feel silly. :$

Join the club. Sometimes I think the harder we try, the more distant the solution.
