I just added some instructions on how to add content to the main site. They are on the main menu of the site, but here's a direct link:http://www.bikepacking.net/how-to-contribute-to-bikepackingnet
It does require setting up an account that is separate from the forum account. I looked at some options to have the forums integrated with the content management system, but didn't like anything I could find. Hopefully it's not too much of an issue (I imagine some users will only participate in the forum anyway).
For those that already signed up for a wordpress account, you were defaulted to subscriber
status, but I have upgraded everyone to contributor
That means you can add new gear products, trip reports and personal setups.
Anything you care to add would be most appreciated. There's too much stuff from me already.
If anything about the process is unclear or doesn't work, leave a comment on the instructions page, or post here.
