CFDb Launches Great New Forum (Buddy Press)

All Things Christian Film

CFDb has launched a great new Christian Film Forum via BuddyPress.

And it’s ALL FREE

What is BuddyPress?

Social networking, in a box.
Everything you need to start your own self-hosted and WordPress-powered social network!

What is a Forum?

An Internet forum, or message board, is an online discussion site where people can hold conversations in the form of posted messages.[1] They differ from chat rooms in that messages are at least temporarily archived. Also, depending on the access level of a user or the forum set-up, a posted message might need to be approved by a moderator before it becomes visible.

Forums have a specific set of jargon associated with them; e.g. a single conversation is called a “thread“.

A discussion forum is hierarchical or tree-like in structure: a forum can contain a number of subforums, each of which may have several topics. Within a forum’s topic, each new discussion started is called a thread, and can be replied to by as many people as so wish.

Why start another Christian Forum?

So why did CFDb start another Christian Forum when there are so many already out there?  The answer is simple:  The utltimate goal for CFDb is to become the Hub for All Things Christian Film!

We want anyone involved in Christian Film, including the Christian Film Fans, to be able to come to one spot for their every Christian Film need!  What can you expect from this new forum?  We’ve already added several groups and forum discussions.  Click here for all the Groups!  Once you Click on a particular Group, you will be taken to a Timeline page, which includes all the discussions going on.  You must click on the Forum Tab of a particular group in order to follow the conversations and/or list a new topic.  Here are the groups that we added already.  It’s just a start.  You can make your own as well!

You’ll notice you can also start groups for your particular Film Company. It’s a great way to advertise your Christian Company by starting your own Group.

 Don’t Miss the JOBS Forum

We have even started a section where people can look for jobs in Christian Film.  This means people can list jobs they are offering and people can look for jobs that are being offered.  We’ve started the group rolling by adding our own job posting!

We hope that, as a result, if you find a great employee on this forum or you are an employee that finds a great job, you’ll spread the news about CFDb as a place to go to find work and great employees.  The best part is that even this section is completely FREE!

This location can be used for finding volunteers as well!
