Not really without customizing. And then at that stage you wouldnt be able to account for multiple pages and such.
In other words, it really wont do what you're after out of the box

Right, I have got the display all working ok.

http://www.uk-biking.net/forumdisplay.php?f=95

I achieved this by using modified versions of the templates and also editing the forumdisplay.php file a bit Shame I had to do that really but I couldn't see any other way. It was only about 3 extra lines, so I should be ok to carry over the changes when upgrading vb.

I will also set the permissions on the sub forum to only allow for me to post and everyone else to only reply, to achieve the blog setup.

This means I can post my own blog on the site and also use a RSS importer to import other news releases and blog entries into their won blogs on the site, which is cool.

The only feature that it is missing now is the ability to allow my users to sign up and manage their own blogs. I do not have a clue how I would achieve this!

I guess it would be fine to have a main Journals forum for people to just run their own threads (like this) and then have the proper blogs as sub forums under this for my administrator, moderators and news/blog bots.

Are you planning on each user having their own forum?

No, general users will just have to have their own thread in the forum, as it is now.

I will create a separate subforum for each admin/moderator (of which there is currently 2) and also one for each blog grabbed by the bot. So there will probably be 5 or 6 sub forums. Not to bad.

If you started to customize your templates why don't you get rid of your tables.
