    [BLOG]: First!

    This is a blog post. To read the original post, please click here »

    Well it looks like I have managed to get the blogs online and cross-posting correctly, thanks to a LOT of help from Jhong, the creator of WP-United. These blogs were not originally part of my plans for RGF, but as I was looking into the whole merged wordpress/forums thing I realized that this could not only be a great opportunity for people to post pictures and stories when they can finally play Torchlight, but it could also allow people to have a place to show the development of their mods, get and give advice, and actually have a place to upload the mods for download.

    To access your blog, all you need to do is be logged into the forums. Next to the "Members" button on the top bar is a place that says Wordpress Blog. Clicking there takes you to the blogs showcase. If you are logged in there should be a place with your forum avatar on the sidebar, and beneath that it will say Dashboard. Clicking on it will take you to the Wordpress Dashboard for authors. Here you can upload files/images, write blogs, edit your blog settings, etc.

    This is by no means bug-proof, but we'll work out the kinks as we find them, and apply upgrades as they come out. For example, a future version of WP-United should let us automatically link to the cross-posted blog post, instead of having a disabled "Comment here!" message.

    If you find anything wrong with the blog setup, feel free to let me know in the comments to this blog.

    The RSS Subcribe leads to an error
    Enabling comments for blog doesn't enable it
    it a little slower than the forum, but its probably not related to the blog.

    Comments are off on purpose actually, because the next update should redirect all comments here. I suppose if I get several people asking for the comments I'll restore them for the blogs. All I have to do is go find where I removed the comments code and paste it back in from a clean copy.

    I'll report the RSS subscribe error and hopefully it'll get fixed in the next update.

    Trappski and I thought it felt slower too. I am guessing it is because a lot of the things normally handled by wordpress are being handled by phpbb3. If it gets really bad as the blogs start to get populated i'll try to find a fix.

    Oh, and to cross post, just select the cross-post option on the bottom right of the "New Posts" page. Your only option should be this Blogs forum.
