I have decided to replace the members-only forum on the site with a Facebook group. Anyone can join the group.
The idea behind the forum (now deleted) was so I can get new topics and ideas to write tutorials on. It was not meant for support.
With the quick growth of Oxygen, there are more people, more questions and more answers that I can write as tutorials for the members. There is no dearth of topics now.
So if you want to hang out with your fellow Oxygen users in a fun informal watercooler space, join the WPDevDesign Facebook group.
Members of the FB group are free and in fact encouraged to share useful and relevant links and resources. You may also post your tutorial requests. But please note that they may not be fulfilled and if/when I do, they may not always be free depending on how much time/effort I put into them.
