A "feature request" by me, for me (well, for everyone.. but I mean, I have to add the feature :P).....

Integration between the forum and the blog.

Just letting you know I'm currently investigating a good way to link the Blog and the Forum together. One thing I found was this WP United plugin. This will be a very significant change to the forum and the blog. I haven't read too much up on it yet, but one feature is the login will be universal between the two.

I think I can also integrate the look/feel between the two. I specifically want the FOIL blog to overtake the header/footer of the forum (which it looks like I can).

This will likely come in the very near future.

Well, dodged a bullet there. I installed a tool called AutoMod and the install went slightly wrong. Got it fixed though.

We'll see how this thing works though, cause that's what I've got to use to install this complicated WP / forum integrator.

Bear with me though. The site might go tits up after I do run this update, but I'll recover it after if it does.

EDIT: Actually the idea is a bit scary now, because from what I've read this plugin doesn't work with newer versions of Wordpress. :shock:

Soooo... I'll have to find something else, me thinks.

Just as a heads up, I think I forgot to mention it...

There is stuff out there to join the blog and the forum, but it works only with older versions. I'm hoping that a newer one in development will not only work with this version but future versions. If joining the blog & forum makes me scared to update either of them to newer versions down the road, then this feature (while cool) isn't worth it.
