Hi,

I've just downloaded and started playing with BE.net which I think is great.

 I would like to be able to allow Users to set up there own Blogs on a location (possibly a sub domain) on the same domain , would this be possible?, or particularly difficult to do?

thanks in advance

Lexius,

If you search this forum you'll find a lot of information about multi-blog scenarios.  I've employed a multi-blog approach with Sueetie at http://sueetie.org.  My approach is to use ASPNET Membership and thus SQL Server for user data, but storing all blog data in XML in \app_data.  When users are created and the blog configured, the user would be assigned Editor of the blog and entered in be_roles.  I use a site-wide BlogAdministrative role as well.  I've documented my implementation pretty thoroughly on the Sueetie Wiki at http://sueetie.org/wiki/SetupBlog.ashx

I also provided DIFF source with the web.config changes to support ASPNET Membership and SQL script on assigning user permissions on a blog-by-blog basis.  That's available on CodePlex at http://www.codeplex.com/sueetie.

Regards,
Dave
