I like XF forums a lot less nowadays and most academics seem to like blogs, so I decided to try and use WordPress to coordinate my online Mabinogi resources.
WP is at least well established so support should be possible.
My trusty helpers at Nimbus Webhosting had it running in an hour or so, though we had some trouble with directory names. I settled down to customise. The backend is much better than last time I tried WP.
