I’ve decided to completely redo Network Amigo, my social networking site. Frankly, it just doesn’t work as a WordPress powered site, even with the plugins that are out there. WordPress was never designed to show content other than posts and pages easily, or have more than 1 blog on the same domain (without using Multisite which brings in a whole different can of worms).
I’m considering my options, but I think I will wait until I can afford it on it’s own VPS account before setting it back up. I’m considering three different scripts for when I do put it back up and they are:
Each has it’s pros and cons, so I have to decide very carefully. The free option is Oxwall of course, with Dolphin being the more expensive of the other two. I’ll have to carefully compare the features of each before I decide which one to use.
I’m getting close to opening IntimateClick to registrations, but still have some work to do on it before I can do that. One of the major things is support for a simple BuddyPress hook to allow a plugin to display it’s data correctly in profiles (which I’ve used for birthdates and other info). I also want to restrict certain uploads in rtMedia, so until I can do that, I have to wait to open the site to registration. Also I’d like to see Payza support in Membership for a payment provider before I open it to registrations.
Since I can’t do much work on my websites without cash (which is limited while I’m off work from Superstore, planning to go back in a week or so), I am going to work on my writing, with the aim of releasing the next chapter of “A Guardian’s Duty” by the end of tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest. After that I’m considering work on a new idea, or working on the next chapter of one of my other stories.
Time for me to get back to that to complete that chapter, so take care!
