I am on a mission to use WordPress as a platform for my Call of Duty clan ProtectorNetwork. I looked at both hosted and self-hosted content management software that is specifically for a guild or clan website but couldn’t find one that feels as dependable as WordPress.
Making it social shouldn’t be hard. I plan on using the plugins BuddyPress and bbpress for that. Some gaming-related plugins in the repository I found will help on the social aspect as well.
My biggest problem always is which theme to use. I need something that is gaming, guild or clan related. After a couple of quick looks at the repository, there aren’t many options out of the free themes. I cannot afford to use a premium theme so I may have to use something that is close enough but not a perfect fit.
Off to work I go!
