Hello all,

I need some help clarifying this issue. Very late into our project, we realized that orchard does not yet support multi-author blogs. Multiple users, of different roles, cannot contribute with posts in one blog.

If only the Blog author is allowed to post in a blog, what to the "own" and "any" blog post refer to, in the permission list of the blog module, if blogs are single author anyways? 

Is there any way we can replice a multi user, single blog with different roles for contributors, authors etc?

I think you'd need to use a module that adds permissions to content items. Even if you did that, there might be some work needed to make the permissions that you would set on the blog apply to all its contained items (posts). This module might be able to handle that: http://orchardproject.net/gallery/List/Modules/Orchard.Module.Downplay.Quanta
