So hello. Good to be here and I’m one of the many who are thinking of fleeing the Buddypress/BBPress environment which has become (IMHO) really unusable in the last year or so.
I love Discourse, the way it looks, the fact that it’s open source and how smoothly it all seems to be working. HOWEVER, the big thing for me is that it’s about 10 or so notches above my ability in terms of configuring stuff. Moderating/uploading logos/changing category colours - very much my level. Doing things that involve coding in RoR, less so.
As it stands I have www.talk.manvfat.com set up on my VPS and it was very kindly installed for me by my ISP (the terrific www.34SP.com) butttttt, the thing that I don’t understand is where the install is! I know for a Wordpress site I can just FTP into the backend and monkey with the php files and see if it works. But I’m lost on Discourse, how do I get at the site?!
Apologies in advance for making the newbiest post you’re ever likely to have but like my mum used to say, “There are no stupid questions, apart from when you asked where Mowameadow is.” How was I to know? I just knew one man went there.
