Managing Blog Permissions

This topic describes the permission settings for global blogs -- that is, blogs that aren't associated with a particular place, such as a space. These include system blogs (which tend to represent the community as a whole) and personal blogs (which represent a particular community member).

Managing permissions for other kinds of blogs varies depending on what kind of place the blog lives in. The following table gives a brief description of each:

Table 1. Permissions Management for Non-Global Blogs
Blog Location Permissions Management
Space You manage permissions for blogs in a space when you manage permissions for the space. For more on space permissions, see Managing Space Permissions.
Social group Access for blogs in social groups are always completely open. That is, if the social group's creator chose to allow a blog for the group, then anyone who's a member of the group can do all of the things there that are allowable for blogs (viewing, posting, and so on). For more information on social group permissions, see Managing Social Group Permissions.
Project Blogs in projects inherit blog permissions from the place the project is in. In other words, a blog for a project in a space inherits blog permissions from the space. For more on space permissions, see Managing Space Permissions.
Note: You configure settings and membership for global blogs by using the Blogs tab of the Admin Console. For more information, see Managing Blogs.
