Title: HAFshop Headlines
Post by: chainmaille on October 10, 2011, 07:36:13 PM
I sent out a newsletter the other day announcing the Handmade Artists' Shop Headlines. This is the shop blog not to be confused with the forum blog LOL. That is why we gave it another name :DAnyway it would be wonderful if we could get some comments going on the blog to show some support for our artists that are featured. Why should you comment? Well here are four reasons to start.So the long and the short of this post is to remind everyone to participate as it is helpful for not only you but for everyone as a whole!
The last post is here http://handmadeartistsshop.com/blog/featured-artist-kpdreams (http://handmadeartistsshop.com/blog/featured-artist-kpdreams) so lets start commenting :D

can only shop members comment?
Buyers and Sellers can comment. But you need to have an account to comment either buyer or seller, we are not allowing just anyone to comment or it would be a spam nightmare. Also we do not want to have 2 different member lists. Basically if you are a member of the shop in one capacity or another you are automatically a member of the blog. since the blog is actually a separate operating system in the form of a wordpress blog, the easiest thing to do was to have the blog adopt the member list. Now behind the scenes if someone joins the shop as a buyer or seller they are automatically added as a user to the blog. We felt this was the cleanest way to do this. Hopefully one day when we redo the forum we can do the same thing with the forum blog. Because as it stands now there are 2 member lists, one for the forum an SMF site and one for the forum blog a wordpress site. This has been problematic as it confuses people. So we can hopefully simplify it one day. Hopefully this long winded response answered your question.
