Hey – it worked! Thanks a go-zillion! I had temporarily abandoned this endeavor, going back to DNN… but it’s just not as intuitive as WordPress / BuddyPress, so I was was very happy to find that you’d posted this solution.
You can also consider using a different CMS – DotNetNuke has vendors/banners integrated with its source. I’m playing around with several open source CMS. I like WordPress for its end user interfaces and for its social networking applications. But I think I may still prefer DNN for business sites… still evaluating.
Roger – thanks for the info. That sounds great – but I was hoping to do a beta launch of my site tomorrow, as it is related to a high profile event taking place tomorrow evening. I’m wondering if anyone has any suggestions that would help me get forums functional for the beta launch… ?
I suppose, if all else fails, I can put a note on the home page that forums will be operational in a few weeks, but I’d like to avoid that…
