Okay, let’s try this again…

Nope, the site wasn’t working for me — not well enough anyway.

So, I’m back over here where I should be – transferred entirely to WordPress – and working on adding the stuff to this wordpress-based site that I wanted out of the Ning – a forum and better ways to have a conversation.  More info as I create it.

Oooooh, pretty!

Sorry Ning didn’t work out.

Not sure about the forum setup, but some ideas that would work in that same context:

1. Allowing registered users the ability to create posts. There’s some granularity there, and that would, in theory, allow for some forum-like thread-generation.

I think you can even set it up to let people create/edit their own posts, but have them all require your moderation before they get posted.

2. WP 2.7 (at least), and some themes, supported threaded comments (comments on a given comment, with indentation and the whole schmear). I haven’t gotten it to work yet, but it’s also something forumish.

Hmm. I see what you mean about the threaded comments as a means for a better conversation. I’ll have to think about the ‘everyone can post’ thing. Hmm. Food for thought.

I think I have the replies set up, but the threading doesn’t appear to be happening. I mean, I’m expecting indentations of ‘children’ replies under the ‘parents’, and I’m not seeing that. Hmm.

And … not showing any threading.


As I said, I haven’t gotten it to work myself. I does require a theme that supports it (mine supposedly does), but I’m not sure what else needs to be done to activate it. A research project, to be sure.
