    Cool! That's WordPress. You weren't kidding about 5 minutes. I don't think it took that long, actually.
    I'm still learning, having only installed it a few hours ago. I've gone through dozens of CMS packages looking for the best ones to suit my needs and those of my students/clients.
    This is one is terrific! I give it two thumbs up. When I said that I realized that WordPress is so user friendly - you really only need two thumbs to make it work. *grin* As awkward as that might sound, I believe it is a compliment which recognizes the simple and friendly interface.
    All I'm looking for now is (a) more 'sytles' or templates [found some at Alex King's site], (b) what forum script/software is powering these forums?, (c) reading all the forum integration posts - found several, (d) finding other plugins and then just playing with the script.
    I know forum integration sounds silly to some, but I'd like to see if it can work seamlessly with WordPress - shared db - one user signup/login and all.
    You have made a very powerful lil' blog package here! Just wanted to share the praise and share the love!
    Take care.

    For Templates, go look at Gemini, Trident and Kubrick.
