Anyone working on that.
Not seen any updates on it for 2 years now.

It reads like someone is meaning to polish it up.

It works but it certainly could use the eye of a good coder.

It is a very basic implimentation of user blogs basically.

I emailed the dev but he never responded as I recall he had a very tough spam filter and he may have never seen my email.

It does work though and thats pretty good.

I did find it in the new CVS. But even in there it's been over a year.

I'll be enhancing my fork of it soonish for the 1.3.12 version. You can get it from my plugins page on sourceforge. fbglplugins I think the project name is.

I started using Journal as a Blogger area, but then realized nothing was Syndicated. So instead I just made a Topic a Blogger Area. Also it was to complicated for the average user.

At this point, I don't see a use for it.

My fork is based on some updates to the journal code from Dirk, and supports providing feeds for each journal, as an option on the per-journal level.

That looks like a PHP5 compatibility issue. Geeklog supports it but this plugin may not.

My journal plugin fork can be aquired from CVS here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/fbglplugins

I'm still working on upgrading to 1.3.12 specifications.

Could this be used with GL1.3.11 or it can only be used with GL.1.3.12?

Did you turn off the possibility to post on the front page or make a featured story for those users who are "sub-bloggers"? If yes, HOW?
