Several blogs in one community?

Is it possible to add several blogs (independent sections) in one community? This is what I want:

Category Cars

  • Discussions about the sport cars
  • Discussions about the vans
  • Blog about the cars

Category Bikes

  • Discussions about the dirt bikes
  • Discussions about the custom bikes
  • Blog about the bikes

Category Boats

  • Discussions about the xxx
  • Discussions about the yyy
  • Blog about the boats

Category Planes

  • Discussions about the zzz
  • Discussions about the qqq
  • Blog about the planes

And if you open the blog about the cars, I could find only articles about the cars, not about the bikes or boats or planes. And vice versa.

I have tested and added blogs under different categorys, named blogs differently, and when I go to the blog (no matter which one I choose) I go to one and the same blog every time.

And this is the bonus question:

Is it possible to build own skin to each and every blog?

Yes, both of these asks are possible out of the box.

You shouldn't be seeing cross-posting in the blogs, if they're all unique. Can you verify this in your Community Structure that they all exist as expected?

For the unique skins, you can set that in Admin > Display > Skins.

You could also do a custom page quilt which is set in Admin > Content > Custom Pages.

In Admin > Community Structure, can you check that the layout exists as you expect? 

For instance, here I have a category with 2 subcategories in it - each of which has its own blog. Everything has a unique ID.

I'm just not sure how it is that you are seeing the same posts across all blogs -- if they're all unique blogs. 🤔

I'm a bit lost, only because what you are describing should be working - Can you include some links to what you are seeing in your Community so we can help?

You can have your own quilt/page in each, as well as a different skin. It depends a bit on what you are trying to accomplish, usually a different skin is an entirely different look/feel, like a different quilt/page will simply be the same design/style, but a different layout.

Testing how this works if I start to type my message while I am not logged in.

Yeah we founded the reason for this. Our labels were hardcoded why they appear all the blogs and are confusing. When we delete those this works ok.
