      Agi,

      There are some really good third party plugins via wordpress for pinterest. I would look into those.

    Is bbpress (forum)compatible with the travel theme? I can’t seem to get it to work.

    • admin says:

      Some plugins are compatible with the theme, and others aren’t, it really is a matter of trial and error, there are hundreds of plugins out there, so being able to tell which ones will work or not is pretty difficult and this goes with all themes that exist others have created. Sorry bbpress doesn’t seem to function with the theme, there may be other comparable plugins that would be more compatible with the theme you can find.
