Legal Department - Remove all blogging features from Sharepoint (mysites)

    Question

  • Our legal department has come down with an edict that before we officially "launch" sharepoint to all users and let them loose with mysites then we have to remove blogging capabilities. I have already hidden choice for users to create a blog site, but all mysites have a blog built in.

    Can anyone provide the steps to remove blogging from mysites?

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    If you want to disable the Blog application programming interface (API) (link to create a blog) in my site, you can do this in application setting:
    Central Administration >Application Management>Web application general settings>in "Blog API settings" section> select "NO"

    Hope it helps.
