Adding a second blog

Permalink Browser Info Environment
Hi, we are in need of a second blog feed on our site. I tried to copy (I used copy, not more or alias) the blog feed we have and place it in a second location but it seems to still pull from the original feed contents list. Is there a way to create a second, totally separate, blog feed?

Do we know if this is possible or do I need to replace the fundamental blog system with an add-on? (I like fundamental's blog...and I'm a little concerned with the number of plug-ins I am using :) ).

Does anyone know if I can have multiple blogs using fundamental?

The blog is simply a page list - you can just use this same approach to create any number of 'blogs' - the complete steps on how to implement this is beyond the support here I'm afraid.

I have another related question. Rather than creating a second blog, can I use topic filtering to essentially have a second blog? We are going to have a blog proper that will have various topics, as well as a stories section that will also have its own topics. However, Could I add an additional topic of "blog" and "stories" to each entry and do topic filtering on those terms to segment the blogging system into to functional blogs?

Or, would you recommend I go through and create a separate blog?

Hi, I am looking to do the same. Is there any documentation on how to create additional blogs.

When I try to add another blog, new posts default to my original. Can I choose the location of my new blog post?

The 'blog' is simply a page list block with custom templates. You would just create a new page with a page list block and create child pages beneath this that would act as the posts.
