Okay, let’s try this again…

Nope, the Ning.com 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.


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. It doesn’t have to be everyone — it can be whomever you select to be so privileged. 🙂

    Oooh … more pretty dice.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Actually, now that I look at it, it’s working on mine. It’s just the indentation is very slight. I need to poke into that.
