    Hi, I run a non profit forum (very small) and I've made some modifications to the core because I when I added the spanish locale it did not translate everything. I am not a developer and I am on a one man forum admin/promoter mission.

    Right now I have all modifications ready (which mostly were changing text to spanish), I added some menu items directly to the default.master.php and a facebook like button.

    I made some modifications to the style.css to display the information better. No big changes however.

    I also installed some plug ins such as the QnA, Gravatar, Facebook connect. I tried to stick to those approved.

    However, I just found out that the QnA module is not letting me change from Question to Discussion it just stays as question.

    I don't have the budget for a hosting plan.

    I was wondering if you offered consulting services. Basically what I would like to be able to do is have the same exact forum but to properly implement the changes that I did to the core.

    Hi Lincoln, I mentioned you in a post, not knowing you are part of the Vanilla development team. I'm looking for a way to force Wordpress and Vanilla to share a user table. All of the single sign on solutions seem to duplicate users (Wordpress user exists, then get's recreated in Vanilla). Is your Glue project the best way to achieve this?

      This is not how you report a security flaw. Encouraging it is complete completely inappropriate.

    How very mature of you to change my username on newbuddhist.com to "Asshat", all because i wanted my account deleted. You must be desperate for members...

    Hi, you helped me the other day answering on how I can change the author of a post. Thanks a lot for that. Another question I'd like to ask is how to change the sorting order of Categories in the Discussion view. I'd like them to appear alphabetically. Is it also a db edit?

    I have upgraded to the latest version and still have privacy issues with activity feeds.. If i switch the profile view of users 'ON' and switch the activity 'OFF' in the roles & permissions of a user 'GARDEN' it still displays the whole activity of users... I have logged out and browsed the forum as a guest and I can see all 'MY' (administrator) activity including persoanl emails and permission changes with other users I dont understand why this is happening Please help i'm losing users.

    You answered one of my questions. But commenting was disabled. I wanted to accept your answer. But I wasn't sure how to enable commenting so that other people could also post answers. I thought if I clicked "reject", it would show me a box to enter some comments.

      Edit your conf/config.php file. Also, ask for help in a new discussion rather than here in the activity feed :) Easier to keep track of that way.
