I am about to undertake a project:
Redesign my primary website (imperialdub.com) which has long been essentially unread news and links, plus a very popular “community section” (phpbb.)
after about a year of loving, coding for, and really appreciating WordPress, i find that doing anything with phpbb is more or less an ultra-turnoff.
So my questions are:
A. is there any simple BB script in the world which would take the user info used in WordPress, and retain it/ retrieve it for use on the board?
B. is there some way to hack, or plug-in, wordpress so that it might operate more like a BB than a blog?
I really want to use one or more installs of WP to execute my entire site, but the issue of ‘community’ is really important. And somehow a “blog” is such a singlular, try-not-to-get-too-personal experience that the dynamic is very different.
Still, the thought of the latest post/comment popping into the first position on the index, as well as the display only being the title/author just doesn’t seem like a way-impossible operation.
that said, i don’t have the know how to alter the post order in the WP structure itself.
and even if i did (cause i am going to try regardless) i wonder ifthe cookie info would even be shared between 2 installations of WP. Probably not, right?
