Is it cool that the modified logo links to the footbloggers area?

No, change it back!

Footbloggers Sites & The Logo

Post by Allan » 12 May 2017 17:11

For reference, here's my pitch:

Each player gets their own Wordpress installation(s) to do with what they will. Create multiple blogs. Create reference sites. is my blog … there are 4 other blogs so far.

If you want to create a store, I can enable Woocommerce. If you want to create a podcast, the same plugin that runs Ken’s “The Symposium” podcast is available too. Got an idea that requires a certain plugin? I might be able to install it for you. See a theme that you'd like to use? I'm probably game to install it for you.

It is obviously still early days for this, and there are features that I’ve yet to add because I am trying to be judicious and carefully consider what plugins to use, but site statistics are one aspect of this project that will be addressed sooner rather than later.

Now to why I'm posting about this in here:

This forum has always lived at What I've done here is that I've installed Wordpress at the root of the website: The forum still exists, untouched. I can keep it running indefinitely and nothing needs to change if we don't want it to. If this idea turns out to suck and nobody really uses it, then nobody uses it.

That being said, I'm kind of enthusiastic about footbloggers potential, and, as a pilot, I've made a change to the forum to promote its existence: I've linked the logo back to the new side of things. I can understand why this might not be a popular thing I'm doing. I can flip a bit and turn it back to being a link to forum home page.

Can we take some time to chat about this via video chat? I think there's some really interesting conversations we can have about the technical side of these things.
