How to create a private blog ?

Jul 8, 2008 at 8:10 AM
I need to configure an instance of BE to be accessible only to people defined in the user list.
Is this configurable?

BE.N is public blog. Everyone can view your blog posts. If you want to configure BE.N so that only registerd user can view your blog post, you can rewrite security role and your theme to support your custom security role.

You can edit the web.config file to deny access to all anonymous users to every page (except Login.aspx).  That way, users will have to sign in before they can view any page.  If you need help, let me know.
