Privatizing a blog

Aug 18, 2008 at 4:49 AM
I have a blog that requires anonymization. I'm doing postgrad work at the moment, but I have to keep my blog/journal private until conditions are met.

how can I anonymize my blogEngine.net install so that readers must log in to read my posts?

You say "Anonymize" but it seems like you mean "Privatize". Anonymization would mean, not attach an identity to the blog owner, blog editor(s), or commenters. Privatization would mean identities may or may not be attached, but you must have credentials (user name / password) to view the blog. Which are you aiming for?

LOL! You're absolutely right joeflateau. I have no idea what I was thinking.
I meant privatization as you describe it.

I'd like all my readers to require a username/password to read the blog.

Does anyone know the answer to this?

A kind individual suggested adding this to system.web in web.config:

    <authorization>
     
<allow roles="Admin" />
     
<deny users="*" />
   
</authorization>


When I added it, blog engine threw an error: see BlogEngine error

I'm outta ideas.

I don't mind writing a plugin to do this! I just need some guidance and help...
