What about the link to the profile page and sidebar they can be made avilable from the sharedblogs url?

German Michael Zülsdorff Replied 4 years ago

it's intended to work that way. The request was making BLOGS sharable, not the complete site.

The majority of Ossn admins was requesting to hide the contents of their communities as tight as possible. So this exception wasn't meant to open holes here and there again.

In the present version I found Sidebar and comments are not visible on the /sharedblogs/view/1 page and more over the link to the profile page is also broken from the /shareblogs url, It should be linked to the user profile page.

You meant using the Video component to insert a video into a Blog?
That's not possible.
But you may use the editors video toolbar button to embed external videos, I think.

How do I add the file upload feature to the blog as shown below?

upload files on the blog

German Michael Zülsdorff Replied 4 years ago

I know which way an Ossn error page looks like.
More interesting would be the link that doesn't work. ;)
