The Forum is not supposed to be a second WordPress install. It was supposed to use a plug-in called Mingle. I want to be able to change the appearance of the Forum page independent of the appearance of the Blog page. Here's what I did to create these:
I created a subdomain for the Blog, under "insightexchange.net": blog.insightexchange.net, and installed WordPress on it.
I then created another subdomain -- for the Forum -- under "insightexchange.net": forum.insightexchange.net, and installed Mingle on that. (A peer suggested Mingle, which is why I chose it.)
I think it would be easier just to have a forum subdomain and a blog subdomain, controlled by one user. (Hack risk will have to be a lower priority.)
Right now, going to the Forum page via the homepage brings up the "Coming Soon!" Dreamhost page.
- Would you know what needs to be corrected here, so that the Forum page comes up? Could this be a DreamHost issue?
Going to the Forum page via the Blog page does bring up the Forum page I created, but it seems dependent on the Blog page's layout, which I do not want. I want the Forum page layout to be independent of the Blog page.
- Would you know how I can accomplish that? Do you suppose I installed Mingle improperly?
Bill, thank you for your patience and your help!
