splitting one blog into five

Travel Forums System Talk splitting one blog into five

1. Posted by hasbeen (Respected Member 602 posts) 2y

Hi,

I have a blog ( hasbeen ) that has 47 entries and I intend adding a lot more.

Having one blog is becoming just too big.

I see I will need at least 5 blogs - hasbeen1 hasbeen2 etc

I therefor intend 'splitting' the current blog into five.

Is there a way for me to duplicate the first blog four times? Calling the second hasbeen 2 and so on. I could then just delete the unwanted entries in each blog.

In order to avoid my friends having to access 5 different blogs, I would like to have them open the current one as normal and have a link of some kind taking then to any of the other blogs they prefer. And of course then be able go to any other blog.

Any ideas on what I need to do would be appreciated.

Steve

Hi Steve,

I'm afraid there isn't any way to do this. But is there any reason to split it up like this? Could you just be very consistent with tagging and end up with the same effect, without the need for 5 blogs? You could use tag "Trip 1" or "Trip 2" for example to basically group entries by trip?

HI,

THANKS FOR THE QUICK RESPONSE & I WILL CERTAINLY GIVE YOUR SUGGESTION A LOT OF THOUHT.

OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD, I DON'T SEE IT WORKING FOR ME THOUGH.

IF YOU LOOK AT MY BLOG, I AM USING THE TABLE OF CONTENTS TO KEEP MYSELF ORGANISED.
THE ONE AT THE TOP IS JUST THE LAST ONE I HAPPEN TO HAVE POSTED.
THEN COMES FUTURE TRIPS.
THEN PAST TRIPS.
THE DEFAULT SORT IS BY ENTERED DAY. I CANNOT ALTER THAT, SO I MANIPULATE THE ENTERED DATES TO FORCE THE ENTRY TO BE WHERE I WANT IT.
YOU CAN SEE THAT IT IS GETTING VERY LONG & WILL BE THREE TIMES THAT BY THE TIME I FINISH. I DON'T KNOW IF THE PAGE WILL 'STRETCH' FOR 150 OR MORE ENTRIES BUT IT WOULD BE TOO LONG ANYWAY.

YOU CAN SEE I ALREADY HAVE TAGS. THEY SEEM TO WORK BY TAKING ME TO A PAGE OF ENTRIES FOR THAT CATEGORY. ALL RUNNING TOGETHER. ONE TRIP WILL BE 50 ENTRIES OR MORE.
I FEEL THAT IS NOT A GOOD WAY TO VIEW MY STUFF. TOO LONG.

WITH MY IDEA OF 5 BLOGS, I ENVISAGE 5 ( OR MORE ) TABLE OF CONTENTS, VIEWERS WILL THEN MORE EASILY SEE THE ENTRY THEY WANT.
AND I WOULD NOT HAVE TO MANIPULATE THE DATES.

SORRY IF I DO NOT EXPLAIN MYSELF WELL.

AS FOR MY QUESTION ABOUT 'SPLITTING' - I WILL CONSIDER COPY & PASTING. HOPEFULLY THAT WILL WORK.
