First, I would like to take a moment to thank Mr. Krystal for the work he had done for SF-O. The Wordpress site layout, which has served us for quite some time, was his creation and is a very fine piece of Web Authoring Craftsmanship.
As great as that design was, there is something in the vision I have for SF-O that Wordpress system cannot accomplish very well: Integrated Community. This is, of course, no fault of Mr. Krystal. It is an inevitability of using different software packages to accomplish different things.
Today's internet is all about social interaction and community. SF-O, in my belief, is where it is because of our community, but the community is not connected to the site. Integration will allow for single-sign-on for all areas of the site, and will provide for SF-O members to better comment on articles as well as other parts of the site, and also to have more opportunities to contribute. It will also provide a consistent look for the site across all functions.
Content restoration will be a top priority, so if all goes well you won't be looking at a "WE JUST MOVED!!!" page with no content for very long (hours at most).
There will likely be some CSS hiccups as I merge the forums and site themes, but they should be minor and I will fix them ASAP.
