    Using WordPress as a conference blogging tool

    Hi there

    I have a conference that has six simultaneous seminars at one point that need blogging. By blogging I mean a single post from each being published that can then be commented on.

    I'm thinking that having six blogs for this might be overkill, so my own preference would be to either have the people who are 'blogging' the event pass the text over to one person with access to the blog and that person publish the posts, or have one blog where the six people can publish to.

    Will Wordpress let six people be logged into a single blog at the same time? I can see this might be problematic...I guess you can set Wordpress that posters don't need to be logged in?

    Grateful for your thoughts on this one!

    I don't believe the number of users is limited. On the WordPress dashboard there's a "users" tab and the blog owner can add and determine the roles of new contributors to the blog.

    Yup, as Linda said, WordPress can handle multiple authors very easily. If you need a live example of this, take a look at Golgotha' Web site, Search-This.com
