    HI,

    I am totally newbie to flatpress. (Haven't even downloaded it yet), but I am eager to start and I have an idea for my blog.

    I wish to have two authors telling about the same project, but both in their own point of view. Now I want the reader to be able to select if they want to read only "his" or "hers" side of the story - or of course select all texts..

    Can this be done with flatpress?

    P.S: I'll be probably later asking how... :)

    Not by design...

    As pointed out many times in various threads here Flatpress is only designed for one author - you might have a problem if you have two admins trying to save files at the same time as access to the indices is not exclusive

    There's a possibility that either the index will get corrupted or one of the posting may not show up.

    You can have more than one admin - just run the setup twice when you install FP and you will be able to create a second login. I suppose one way around the above problem (sort of) is to have both people post using something like Windows Live Writer, or via Posterous would be safer as WLW lets you edit posts too, which might cause a problem.

    You could also stick with one admin and create a form which will allow multiple users to make draft posts but, really, you should stick to using FlatPress the way it was designed to be used.

    I think you can manage this by make two categories. Maybe you have to modify your theme to display it more logicaly.

    If you need help at anything i will help you as best i can.

    //EDIT but they have to use one account!!!!

    Damn Stanley was one sec faster

    It's not necessary, just run twice the setup (as Stanley said).

    Thank you all for your input. As I said in my first post, that I hadn't even downloaded the program, so I really didn't have clue what you were talking about. However I have now installed Flatpress, translated it to Finnish (at least, most of it) and figured out what you talked about.

    It works like a charm. Running the setup twice will give two admins, and making a subcategory for the two authors I get the result I wanted. (Making it a main category the reader couldn't select text by both authors.)

    One other thing I figured out just myself (probably beaten to pieces in this forum already) was how to make entries to the past... Just use the configuration time offset in minus hundreds or thousands hours to get the date required..

    Thanks a bunch,
    Samuel Garrett

    You can install the datechanger plugin to do that - it adds a date selector to the new entry input form. It only works on new entries though - you can't change dates on old entries using this.
