Forum or Blog Not sure which? HELP

    I have an entry, Mom & Alzheimer’s, and would like to use it as a diary of sorts where I can enter a thought, then enter another and so on without having to reply to my original entry (like in a blog format) but where people can reply to each entry. How can I achieve this?

    Do you have LiveChat support or a phone number as I have tried to accomplish this before with no luck.

    You can likely use either a forum or a blog – in which case, people can comment on your posts. In either case, if you want to make new one, just make a new entry – a new thread in a forum or a new post. I think a blog will be easier to manage as bbPress is different – if you have questions about using that, you’d need to ask here:

    bbPress

    To get all the posts for that section in one menu item, you can use a category – assign that category to each of your posts and then make a menu item for that category.

    No, sorry, the only free support from WordPress.ORG is on these forums.

    So this will keep all my posts about my mom in one thread and not as a reply to the previoius?

    If so I will try that. Thank you.

    If you are just using WordPress posts (not a forum) – and you do not want what you write to be a comment to an earlier post, yes, just create a new post and use the category you’ve assigned to all such posts. And add that category to the menu – under Appearance > Menu – create a category page.

    You’re welcome – and you’ll get good at it again – it’s a lot of new stuff to learn and it’s confusing :). Just keep trying and asking questions when you need to.

    I’ll do just that.
