RFC from (fellow) Geeks….

I have been using Word Press for several months now and enjoy using it. There are, however, a couple of aspects I don’t like. The main hangup I have with it is that I can’t get a functional history of posts put together on the website. What I want is the ability to have posts sorted by topic within each category so that navigation is easier. The closest thing I have found so far is here — Category/Topic Sorting. I can’t seem to get this one integrated into a single page within WordPress, however. I currently have a plugin that will sort posts alphabetically and another that will show posts by month. Neither is satisfactory. Joomla, on the other hand, will allow me to do sublevels and categories. I have added this capability to a development version of my wife’s site. If you look at the new category on the main menu, it will take you to a subcategory into which I can file stuff after it is no longer a newsflash.

I can’t find much info on importing WordPress into Joomla, so that might be the biggest holdup, but I’d appreciate comments on this.

I have been wargaming as long as I can remember. I met my wife when I was 14 and had been gaming long before that so that should give you an indication as to how long it has been. One of the first games I owned was Anzio by Avalon Hill. I drove over to the hobby shop in the snow to pick it up as I finally had the money to get something! I can remember playing with Airfix figures and Roco tanks back in the 6th grade and before.
