    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:

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


    Harsh Agrawal

    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.

    Hi harsh,

    Thanks for providing us the tutorial on how to use this Awesome theme. But the problem, I don’t have this theme with me. When will you start the contest. I am eagerly waiting for it to get this theme.

    Yes i saw it on CallingAllGeeks. Hope this will be a helpful platform to find answers and questions.
    I will surly participate.


    Harsh Agrawal

    Hope to see some questions and answers from you Bilal :)


    Sahil Kotak

    This is really good, and I liked it but have no plan to create a new venture for now. :)



    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.



    I saw your callingallgeeks.org/help , looks good Harsh.
    Discussion community brings you lots of traffic as well. It’s always good to have a community/forum of your WELL SETTLED site.
    Hope your help version of callingallgeeks does extremely well.

    Kunal hoping for the same.. Might take some time before it actually becoming active.. Cross promotion is the best way here..


    Shanker Bakshi

    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.


    Harsh Agrawal

    Shankar I have used Simple script and already covered about this on my hosting blog.. Just for this tutorial, I used Fantastico..
    I have worked with Bluehost a lot and they have simple script to Install WordPress…. :)



    Simple Script! What is that?


    Harsh Agrawal

    This will give you enough idea about Simple script
