I asked myself that question some time ago. There is this extension:
But it wasn't exactly what I expected. I didn't like the "one user <->
one blog" relationship. I wanted blogs to have their own names, and to
be part of the wiki as a whole, following the wiki philosophy, like
"many users <-> many blogs".
So, I started this extension:
There are a lot of features missing for a blog, I never had time to
finish it, but it does what I expected:
- Blogs are part of the wiki, not user's pages.
- It follows wiki philosophy as far as possible: any user can post to
any blog, as long as it has edit permissions to the "Blog:" namespace;
if a user makes an inappropriate post, you just move or delete that
post's page; many users may collaborate to a single blog post.
- Blogs (and posts) in different languages are linked through language
- Wiki categories are user for blog categories also.
If you want to see it in action:
Among the features that are currently missing for a basic blog is the
generation of RSS feeds (other than the builtin MediaWiki RSS feeds,
that are not exactly what is expected for a blog).
Feel free to use it if you want. It is open source, so if you (or anyone
here) want to contribute the missing features, it will be highly
appreciated. If there is enough interest in it, I may ask MediaWiki devs
to host it in MW's Subversion repository.
