WordPress is the software that we are using for this site. If you are familiar with WordPress blogs, there will be nothing new here, but some questions have come up a few times now so here is a quick FAQ for people new to WordPress:
What is the ‘Login’ link for?
That is asking for a WordPress id. It is a standard part on WordPress blogs – not something that we’ve specifically added.
What is a WordPress id? How do I get one?
It is a user-account which will work across all WordPress-hosted blogs. To get a userid, go to http://wordpress.com/signup/ (remembering to tick the ‘Just a username’ box if you don’t want to create a blog of your own).
Do I need a WordPress id to read everything on the ‘Hursley on WMQ’ site?
Do I need a WordPress id to register for updates via RSS feeds on the ‘Hursley on WMQ’ site?
Do I need a WordPress id to add a comment to something on the ‘Hursley on WMQ’ site?
No. (Although it might take us a little longer for your comment to appear, because it’ll need moderating.) For the moment, anonymous comments are welcome.
