First off, thanks to everyone who has helped me so far.
I have things working. I can set privileges. I can create new journals.
(a) How do I change the news?
(b) How do I change options - like making subdomains automatic for all users?
(c) Which bml page or subdirectory do I go to to change site-wide options, period?
EDIT: Okay, I have a news thingie on the front page. I did, however, notice something on the login.bml page - just above the links for News, Paid Accounts, and Contributors - it still says "LiveJournal", and I cannot figure out, for the life of me, where that is coming from, since my site name(s) (long, short, abbrev) are changed in my ljconfig file.
I still haven't quite figured out how to add new templates, faq/support entries, etc. Definitely need help with that. Is there a way of mass-importing faq/support entries from somewhere or do they ALL have to be hand-coded?
Last but not least, how can you add a mascot and a slogan to the entire site?
Oh, and if anyone can help me figure out how to update the code and keep it working, I'd really appreciate it. I tried to do a CVS to the bleeding-edge release, but I must have to update some before going that far because things are radically different - like, for instance, ljconfig moves to the etc directory, and yet another file is expected in etc that isn't there.
Lastly - how in the daylights do you upgrade individual user accounts?
