My reply was discussing the feasibility of doing what I think you were describing inherent in EA and its permissions.
 
As I noted :   "I don't use Simple Portal so I'm not familiar with what additional features (or restrictions) it might bring ." For further discussion on Simple Portal I'll step aside and allow someone with SP familiarity to discuss its features..

Quote from: Steeley – If you want to have a user with his own little "mini blog", you can easily control who can post to a particular board with the standard admin permissions. If you want other users to be able to discuss those blog posts, granting other users reply (but not create) new topics in that board I believe is doable.

Oh, you mean that SP does use discussion boards as blogs? Didn't understand this from the description ... it just said:

Quote from: https://elkarte.github.io/addons//feature/Simple-Portal.htmlArticles
With the article system enabled, you can easily publish them directly on the Portal, no block is necessary. You can also show articles on any SimplePortal Page, or wherever you have blocks displayed, using an article block.

You can create your articles using BBCode, HTML, Markdown or even PHP depending on your needs. You can attach images to your articles and place them inline or aligned to the left or right to give them a blog look and feel.

Articles are assigned to and organized by categories. You can easily create many different categories, and your users can then browse articles by category. No blog system would be complete without a comment functionality and SimplePortal makes that easy.

From this I deducted it's different beast altogether than discussion boards.

Quote from: Steeley – I believe EA supports embedded Youtube Videos (perhaps by add-on?), but whether or not they are viewable within EA is probably up to YouTube.. I have seen more and more YouTube video presentations in various sites with the overlay saying something like: "This Video can only be viewed in Youtube.. Click here"

Maybe it's more about the way they are embedded ...

Since I have never encountered anything like this when watching YT with MPV media player, for example.

The fact that you don't need to search for the RSS feed hyperlink for the feed aggregator with that FreshRSS extension. In that you can just c+p the channels URL and that's it.

Sure all YT channels have RSS feeds included in their channel page but you cannot just c+p it. You have to dig it from the webpage source.

Ah thanks for those details.

I had seen bad behavior log errors on a test site, but not during the patch phase.

I've attached the fixed plugin which should resolve that error.  Just replace the one in ...sources\ext\bad-behavior

Quote from: Vague Whiner – <snip>
if it's possible to assign permissions to specific users to write blogs? Also it would be nice to have them as separated blogs. So that if user want to browse one writers blog posts those would be found from the one page and other writers blog posts from the another. Then collect the newest entries to blog index page, 10-15 newest posts from all blogs.

Is this kind of thing easy to do with SP addon?

Would be really nice to keep all the things within the ElkArte and not set up many different things :)

If you want to have a user with his own little "mini blog", you can easily control who can post to a particular board with the standard admin permissions. If you want other users to be able to discuss those blog posts, granting other users reply (but not create) new topics in that board I believe is doable.  Another option (I think EA permits) is allow the blog poster the ability to create sub-boards in his specific board for discussion - he'd have to link them to the main board topic by title or html link - and that might require some tricky permission profiles for other users if admin isn't going to be required to facilitate each new addition and user access to those sub-boards. 

These are inherent EA permissions - I don't use Simple Portal so I'm not familiar with what additional features (or restrictions) it might bring - I'll defer to others on that one, but it looks like EA is able to do, one way or another,  what you describe inherently without add-on dependency.. If Simple Portal overlays on EA's permissions. that's cool.
 
Edit: as for "Latest Posts" that's also inherent, although having them repeated for separate boards  (latest in board A, latest in board B, etc.) I'm pretty sure will require some code manipulation. I'll defer that question to Spuds or someone more familiar with the PHP under the hood.

I restored 1.1.8 version from the zip file again making sure all files are the original 1.1.8 and no hooks. Install the 1.1.9 patch. And the hacking attempt comes again. Error log reported this:

Quote from: Spuds – If you have simple portal installed .... See https://www.elkarte.net/community/index.php?topic=6141.msg44129#msg44129

I have a SP 1.0.1 just about ready to release to fix that and some other issues reported over the months since 1.0.0
I do not have SP installed and reverting back to 1.1.8 seems to work. When I re-patched with 1.1.9 it happened again. I will test again later.

Just one question about the addon ... is it possible to gather YouTube channels like it is with FreshRSS and it's extension YouTubeChannel2RssFeed?

Also are those videos possible to watch within ElkArte?

Also it's not a big thing to make separated "forum" for this aggregation so they are not messing up the discussion topics?
