I need your assistance

PostAuthor: Bing » Sun Jan 24, 2016 5:31 am

As you know or if you dont you do now that I will be upgrading our website here. I decided to go with a Wordpress frontend while maintaining our forums on the same website. Wordpress runs in php which our databases run in so I already found the bridge between the two. I already have wordpress running on my personal computer so I can do all the side work and then at the right time I will upload it all to the servers to minimize any down time.

What you can help me with is by finding us a theme to use. Being that we are community operated I am asking y'all to help me in this endeavor.
I have found a page that you can look through to see if you can find a theme. I am thinking of a news or magazine type theme but you may have other ideas.
If you go here https://wordpress.org/themes/browse/new/ and look around perhaps you can help me find something that we would all like and that can handle our needs.

I have found a few that I will share here:

https://wordpress.org/themes/news-maxx-lite/
https://wordpress.org/themes/newspress-lite/
https://wordpress.org/themes/news-mix-light/
https://wordpress.org/themes/mh-newsdesk-lite/
https://wordpress.org/themes/point/

On the first link is a searchbar that you can put in things like news, magazine, forums etc to filter down to the different themes so play around with that and paste the links to the theme you like back here please so I can check them out. Not all of these might run what what we want so I will have to check them all out to make sure.
Thanks for your help!

They all look good to me. After looking at a dozen or so, the only one that looked as interesting as yours was this one: https://wordpress.org/themes/diamond/

I am sure you will pick the one easiest for you to use. I will follow along like a good puppy dog and learn to use it.

I know Ron was more conscientious than I was. Thanks Ron ! We can always count on you. As the resident Luddite, I am the least qualified to choose a theme and understand why I chose it :D Bing you have never led us wrong on tech matters so........... YOU pick it :lol:

Ron I will try that one out but just looking at it it looks like it needs alot of TLC.

Fred we can install more than one and I can switch them to find the right mood as it were so pick a few.
