I just posted this to Random -- not easy getting away from that -- also because this was reply to someone who hasnt joined hewre a GG.
@Lapin, thanks for contacting me in email -- I just sent a reply.
@ Lapin, Carl Fink, and others with possible hosting and setup offers -- and @ Kilby , larK, and others with important views and questions on hosting and setup ..
-- Where have we gotten?
-- How do we decide?
Next step --
Beside the hosting and WordPress opensource installation (a very big contribution!), there are steps for a WordPress Manager and (maybe same or different person or collab) and Site Designer to take initially -- upon receiving the Go and maybe passwords etc from hoster / wp installer. And that would be to
-- select a Theme (what some call "template" but technically inaccurate)
-- Start a MOCKUP of the site, with permanent header area showing welcome text and some tribute to CIDU Bill and the present site, etc
-- And a sample post, with a comment added when you are not signed in as admin, so we can see if that is working.
-- And think about what kind of routine could be communicated to the editorial staff on the steps to upload maerial and use the editors onboard to make a comics post, including settings.
-- Ask for feedback on that first draft, maybe public here in Random, semi-private on the Google Group, and particularly in direct contact from designated Feedbackers. Feeders-Back?
@Kilby, would you agree to be a primary Feedback person? I know you have a good feel for what is convenient or impractical to use and pleasant or uncomfotable to see. Others welcome too.
