Blog vs Journal

Avatar

Level 2

Hi,

I'm having a hard time understanding the difference between a journal and a blog in CQ?

The docs describe it as:
"The Social Journal component is very useful for publish-side blogging. You can create a journal page in your CQ author instance, and add permissions for the users who are allowed to create entries in that journal."

How exactly is this different from how the social blog components work?

Any insight is appreciated.

Thanks.

I'm aware this question is a year old - apologies for not replying at the time.

But, for anyone who runs across this question and has the same question, please visit

  http://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-1/author/communities/blog.html

Short summary :

  For AEM 6.0 and earlier :

    Blog feature was based on a page template for author-only editing.

    Journal feature allowed community content to be entered from publish environment (UGC).

  As of AEM 6.1

   The Blog author-only template has been deprecated.

   Journal is being re-purposed as the Blog feature.
