    I'm logged into the forums, but when I click over to the main site and want to post a comment to your blog, I'm asked to sign in again. Not a big problem, but certainly a duplication of effort...

    Correct. They are two totally different systems.... however, I have already purchased some very cool software that should bridge the two systems together and make things much more seamless. Soon all Wordpress logins (the main site) will authorize from the forums database. There are other benefits, but that one should (I think--I won't know for sure until I test) make it unnecessary to members to re-login as they move between the main site and the forums.

    I started working on this project today. It's not a simple thing, but hopefully I'll have it up and running soon.
