Social network front end with WP backend (4 posts)

    Hi All,

    I am working on a social network project with a wordpress backend.

    It is a very bloggy type of site - so wordpress sounded great to use to keep track of everything.

    The idea of the site (not my idea - just getting paid to code it) is a place for people to share (long) stories about their life, and have people follow and comment on them.

    Is there a guide or set of docs that would let you know how to interact with the wordpress backend?

    I am hoping I can figure it all out myself - but if the path has already been made, I would appreciate some direction.

    The goal would be to either make a theme that makes it look completely unlike a wordpress site, or to make a front end that just connects with the wordpress code to do things like post and display stories.

    Any notes, tips, or links would be appreciated!!

    --Ryan
