django-multiblogs 0.1.4

An application for managing multiple blogs, and even *gasp* blog "sets".

Django multiblogs
==================

Built on the ArticleBase model in the One Cardinal fork of [django-articles](http://github.com/powellc/django-articles/), multiblogs
allows for multiple "sets" of blogs. Motivated by requests for both teacher and student blogs, and the need to have them segregated
on the website, multiblogs allows for multiple students to have their own blogs and to group them under one url.

URL examples of this scenario, when app is wired up to the base url of the site:

```
http://yourschool.com/student-voices/the-more-you-know/2011/our-new-principal/
http://yourschool.com/grade-7/fairys-and-goblins/2011/how-to-slay-werewolves/
http://yourschool.com/artsy-fartsy/photos-n-more/
```

Maybe you don't need blog sets? Just multiple different blogs. That's cool. Just go ahead and set your particluar blog to be part
of no set and it will hookup to the default url:

http://yourschool.com/awesome-blog/2011/one-great-post/

Of course, you can't mix and match that kind of thing, as you need to set the variable ```MULTIBLOGS_WITHOUT_SETS = TRUE``` so that we
can properly re-route urls and what-not.

### Big, huge caveat:
This app was built with a custom version of django-articles. The Article
model in codekoala's project is awesome, but a bitch to reuse elsewhere
on a site, as Articles would get listed all over the place if they were
save once. My fork of
[django-articles](http://github.com/powellc/django-articles) creates an
abstract base class, ArticleBase, which multiblogs uses to do most of
it's lifting. You can "pip install" this fork using my pypi server at
pypi.onecardinal.com.

Install
---------

```
pip install django-multiblogs
```

Else you could follow whatever procedure you use to install python packakges (easy_install, etc)

Configuration
--------------

Currently there is little to configure. The important part is to wire it up in your django project:

```
INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    'multiblogs',
    ...
)
```

Also, set:

```MULTIBLOGS_WITHOUT_SETS= TRUE```

If you do not want the infinite power of blog sets to go along with your multiple blogs.

In your urls:

```
urlpatterns += patterns('',
    ...
    (r'^blogs/', include('multiblogs.urls')),
    ...
)
```

Templates (& URLs)
--------------------

All templates go in a 'multiblogs' directory in your TEMPLATE_DIR:

```
blog_set_list.html (/)

blog_set_detail.html (/<blog-set-slug>/)

blog_detail.html (/<blog-set-slug>/<blog-slug>/)

post_year_archive.html (/<blog-set-slug>/<blog-slug>/<YYYY?year>/)

post_detail.html (/<blog-set-slug>/<blog-slug>/<YYYY?year>/<slug>/)
```
