So, after some thought and rooting around in the backend of BlueHost, I found a thing called Simple Machines Forum which is a great open source software program for forums. I installed it and added a couple of packages to extend functionality, and waa laa – we now have a forum for readers. It is for readers and by readers, I mean, anyone who reads. If you are an author, we’d love to have you but we ask you put on your reading cap when you come in.
You don’t have to register to post. The only required field is your name, which can be ANON, if you like, but I suggest Jean or perhaps Jamie or even Jericho. If you do sign up, you can have a reserved name and an avatar. There are a few other features that are available when you register.
The best way to use the forum, in my opinion, is to use the following two options that appear under your name when you login:
We all hope you enjoy yourselves and use the forum for whatever purposes it needs to be used for. Please feel free to give us feedback as message boards are very new to us.
