I am considering Wordpress software, specifically the iBuilder version. Wrote an e-mail to the sales department but no answer in two days.

Anyway, here's the concept for the site - think of it as a Newspaper with many different writers (bloggers). Each writer's articles (posts) needs to be accessible on a different page, that's the challenge.

Let's say I have 10 different bloggers and want to feed each blogger's work onto a different page. Is this possible with Wordpress or do all blog posts have to feed into the same page on the site?

The page url's would end up something like this:

www.mysite.com/SallyJesse
www.mysite.com/FredFlintstone
www.mysite.com/BestBlogger

Maybe set up each blogger with their own "Category" and then place each category on a separate page?

Or would I have to set up each blogger's page with a separate Wordpress installation?  And then link the different installations somehow?

Or is there another solution?  I do know html and CSS, but that is the limit of my knowledge on the coding side. Thanks for your help.

Separate archive pages for every author is built into WordPress.

Meaning all posts made by SallyJesse will automatically be shown at http://www.yoursite.com/author/sallyjesse

and all posts made by FredFlintstone will automatically be shown at http://www.yoursite.com/author/fredflintstone

and all posts made by BestBlogger will automatically be shown at http://www.yoursite.com/author/bestblogger

and so on..

It is also possible to show the same at other URLs like http://www.yoursite.com/sallyjesse and so on using query_posts() or pre_get_posts

All the above is possible in any WordPress theme. But of course with our iThemes Builder you will have the awesomeness of a powerful layout editor to help you quickly and easily set up the sites that way you want them.
