This component/theme works with latest OSSN version.
German ~Z~ Man 4 years ago


A component allowing members to create simple blogs in your social network.

For your convenience, all Ossn default language files are already in place, but (except of the English and German one) still need translation.
Volunteers are welcome!
You can send your translated ossn.XX.php language files to
[email protected]

This component won't allow you to disable or remove its pre-requisites (OssnProfile and TextareaSupport) as long as it is enabled.

One is eating with the eyes too :-)
no worries, I just miss a basic documentation of concepts like hooks and registrations of the platform.

Okay, understood.
Honestly I don't see a real advantage in your suggestion, even more since - as already shown - the blogger may start with a header picture inside the blog.

Feel free to code a blog title image option yourself, I'm currently too busy with other things, sorry.

ch Immanuel w Replied 2 weeks ago


Just generally, when I access/create a group I can see/define a header image with a nice looking title in it.
I would like to have the same visual appearance for a blog entry. To have a image inside the blog is not an option, because it's just nicer looking and more consistent in the visual appearance of the components groups and blogs.

Can you please be more precise (provide a sample url) about on what kind of blog page you want a title image ?

I mean, in case you're talking about the blog itself, why not simply making that image part of the blog like I did it here for example ...

enter image description here

How can I change the component to support a title image like a group?
Where should I start if not compare codes from groups and blogs?

@all who were asking for shared Blog pages

do you want to share only the Blog
or Blog comments, too?

German ~Z~ Man Replied 2 months ago

Nothing Martin,
it's intentionally coded to work that way.

unregistered members cannot see the contributions. what did I do wrong

German ~Z~ Man Replied 3 months ago

no component provides a built-in option to enable it. The logic behind is part of the administrator backend. And if you don't see that Enable Button you're most likely missing one or more pre-requisites (listed in the right column with a red X)
