Well, I had to take down the old blog-nothing really worked on it, and it didn’t look all that good anyway. So I decided that a rebuild was in order. So I reinstalled BuddyPress and created three Groups. Now to join Group Discussions, you will have to register for those. Those are meant for extended discussions beyond the blog posts-and even the blog posts could be fodder for discussion topics as well.
But I’m keeping those separate. You can comment on the blog w/o joining the groups. (For Now)
