Use GoDaddy to host website, trying to create a FORUM

  • samdizzle


    Hello friendly webpeople,
    So I’m fairly new to the website creating world (go me) and thanks to GoDaddy’s website builder, I actually have something pretty nice. One of the things I wanted to do was add a forum. Talking with the GD tech support people, they suggested getting wordpress (hosted through them) and then downloading the bbPress plugin, and easy-as-pie – NOW YOU HAVE A MESSAGE BOARD!

    But that’s where they left me.

    I’ve been trying for hours to figure out how you go from the dashboard, which is basically a blogger UI, to turning it into a message board. For years, I was an admin for a little board we all ran, but it was a YaBB board and everything I had to do, I did from the admin panel.

    Is there a simple way to make this plugin look and behave like a message board?

    Please help this poor little sheep.

    Your pal,
