I’ve launched a blogging community for the church as a whole over at www.insightsforchurch.com and just finished setting everything up yesterday. In the setup process I created a theme for the main WP site and called it inductaloot. After installing several plug-ins and modifying some scripts it seems to be working the way I want it to. Showing the most recent site-wide posts, have a list of the most active blogs (views/comments/posts) on the right, and also will have a site-wide tag cloud as new posts are added (didn’t work retroactively for the 50ish posts already in there).
This theme is a private theme developed for a multi user install of word press. If you are looking for a free blog and are in the ministry at some level (lay or professional) get one! Head over to Insights For Church and sign up for your free blog today.
