How does WordPress Planet work? (4 posts)

    How does WordPress Planet work - does it use the Planet software, or WordPress? If WordPress, what plugins does it use?

    I want to set up a planet, but the Planet software is a bit daunting and I thought WordPress might be easier. I know there's a few aggregator plugins that might work, but knowing the exact plugins that are known to work on WordPress Planet would be extremely helpful.

    Thanks!

    Hard to say for sure since I don't have access to look at the actual software, but the output definitely looks like the Planet feed aggregator to me. Of course, you could do it with WordPress, but it'd be overkill for something like that.

    Anyone else notice that if you go to planet.wordpress.org --- it has the same header nav as this forum --- but the nav doesn't work.

    If you go to planet.wordpress then click Forums in the header, it should take you to this forum, but instead you get a 404 error.

    Kind of unprofessional for a website-making website, I wish they'd fix this. I have pointed it out in kvetch and another thread but I don't know who to email about that.

    DGold: http://wordpress.org/report-bugs/ is the correct place to report site bugs.
