It depends on the purpose of the blog or forum. Forums are for people to interact while a blog is a way for you to update your site. Which will it be?

Like Adrian said, what are you trying to accomplish by adding them interactivity or updates?

Having both will serve you well as they'll provide fresh, free content!

How to set up a blog with Affilorama hosting - no idea :cry: do they have a Fantastico module in the control panel? If so, look in there and you'll find an easy Wordpress installer :wink:

Just one thing to remember if you install a wordpress blog on your site. One part of the instructions say "99% of people don't have to worry about this...."

Well, if you have the godaddy/affilorama hosting, you are in that 1%, so just make sure you make that little change. Took me ages to figure it out.

Hi,

well I want to have a blog on my site for updates and so, but if wordpress isn't working very well with the affilorama hosting, which one do you recommend then?

It works fine with the hosting, it's just that theres an extra little thing you have to do when setting up. Once you have that done, it works perfect.

I'd still go with wordpress.
