How to Install and Configure Answers WordPress Theme

In my earlier post I have written about Answers WordPress theme which will help you to give a Yahoo answers type  WordPress blog and  by installing it on your sub directory or sub domain you will actually create a blog in Auto-pilot mode.

I have installed this WordPress theme on my CallingAllGeeks sub directory for tech & gadget related questions and I’m sharing complete tutorial on how you can install this theme and configure it.

In this scenario I will be installing WordPress on sub directory name help.

First thing you need to do is Download this theme and install a sub directory in your blog by using your cPanel.

Installing your sub directory:

If you are using Hostgator or any other hosting which offer cPanel, click on Fantastico then Select your domain and give a name to your sub directory and install WordPress normally.

Check this screenshot:

So pretty much in couple of minutes your blog will be live with a help/support forum which can be used to quickly make money for your blog via various method. Right now it’s live at Callingllgeeks.org/help and I’m working on it, so might take another day or two before it will be complete live with proper branding.

    so you use “Fantastico” for installation purpose, have you ever use “Simple Script” actually she is the mother of all auto install services :-) and had almost every service/tool/software/program in her bucket for installation.

    For this kind of blog to work, i would definitely provide some free software or similar freebies because without some in it, no one will post.

    Nice theme and tutorial but one need to have a good community in the start for the survival of such a blog.

      Harsh building a community is a time taking job and every blog/forum admin need to do it.
      So eventually this particular system will put your answers blog in auto pilot mode..once you have successfully done it.
