The future of 'Member Blogs' on BN

When we move to the new forums, it won't have functionality for member blogs.

The new forum software converts all vBulletin blogs into a single forum called Blog Archive. This is the easiest solution.

However, there are a handful of members that still create blogs, and, I like the idea of members having the ability to still post 'blog-like' posts, so here's what I propose:

We'll have a new forum called Member Blogs, where all of the current blogs will be archived into. We can adjust the template so that the posts are more bloglike.


  • Any member which currently has a blog, and wishes to continue blogging on the new site, please let me know in the comments below.
    • For these members I will create them a dedicated forum to act as a blog. I will set permissions so that only they can post in there, and they are able to edit, delete, their posts and comments.
  • All other blogs will be put in the blog archive

Please let me know by the end of JULY 2021, if you wish to continue having a blog.

After the end of July, blogs will close to new entries and comments. People that have asked to have their blog continued will be made a forum, and their posts will be transferred into it.


Any questions, please let me know!

I’m not too attached to my blogs, I used that function mainly to save my longer posts that I thought would be useful to refer to in future.

More important to me is the functionality of the wardrobe, hopefully it can be retained in much the same way

I would like to have access to the blog, please. Thanks
Also, can you tell me how people are able to find out about my blog? Is there a listing somewhere that can be accessed?

There will a page which list them all, and any new posts you make will end up in the 'latest posts' feed along with the forums etc
