I have to say that I’m glad to see that the community around BP appears to be very strong, and that’s good thing. I’ve always tried very hard to advocate for open source, and have done so for over a decade now. I plan on advocating more for WordPress, BuddyPress, and bbPress, as well as the WordPress Foundation through my Autism site. I take exception to those who talk about being able to tell when a site is based on WordPress. Of course, its up to the designer of the site whether or not they will fly that flag, and I’ve long ago decided that I would let everyone know what I was using to get things done. I’ve been running Mobodojo on WP since 1.2.

Sadly, though, I’ve been growing accustomed to the automagical nature of WP and have stopped using themes which need to be tweaked every time the code base gets updated (though Atahualpa and Arras are stunningly powerful themes) as well as counting on plugins to do everything I need. The deficit lies in the fact that I’m hopeless when it comes to coding. Sure, I can edit existing PHP and even make it work 13% of the time, and I’ve been hacking around HTML for years, but there are things I need to have my site do, and so I’ll need to buckle down and either find out a way to do it myself or pass along my passion to someone (or someones) who have the skills.

I realize that my opening post sounded upset, and I was, but that frustration should never have been vented on the BP community. I do thank you all for making some mild fun of me and, otherwise, being very cordial and helpful. I’m also pleased with myself to have managed to spark a little bout of debugging :)
