Blogging with multiple authors

Hi everyone, 

I'm wondering if anyone knows if the Lithium community platform offers an option for managing a blog with multiple authors (ie, blog contributors write a post then submit for review to the editor, then the editor can go review and publish).  I've been digging around the admin portal and can't seem to find how to enable this!

Thanks,

Andrea

I don't believe that is possible within Community, however it is possible if your business also has a SMM service. Publishing via the Reach (Social Publishing) part of SMM gives you the ability to have an approval flow.

The on community blog management is quite simplistic and needs an overhaul. You can't even see drafts by other users without either switching to their user account (if you are an admin) or if they give you a direct link to the article.
