After using CP on all my sites since the Beta days, and with the permission of the CP team, I have made the classicpress.club website.
I have designed it as an unofficial forum where ordinary website owners can discuss using CP. It is not intended to compete with this forum, but to be a place where ordinary people like me, who only have basic technical skills, can ask questions and share tips.
It is a more laid-back forum where no one is an expert or has authority over anyone else. Being separate from the CP team and not concerned with how CP actually works or is governed, it will hopefully attract site owners who may otherwise feel a bit intimidated by the official forum or Slack.
I am very aware of the need to spread the word about CP and the site is made to help in that. The CP team insisted I make it plain the forum and site is not owned, operated, endorsed or affiliated with ClassicPress in any way.
I have advised people to come to the official forum if they need professional advice, technical or otherwise. Hopefully, it will be just another tool in raising awareness of CP, at no cost to the project.
Please feel free to join as an ordinary member and to let others know the site exists. Every little bit helps in getting the word out.
