Whistl.com reboot

My little world got shutdown when some spammers got into my system and flooded it with comment spam.  My ISP shutdown the website and notified me.  I tried to recover from backups, but my backups failed.  I decided to start over, with some more mainstream software, WordPress.  I recently read a history of WordPress, and was surprised to learn that WordPress and b2evolution blog software were both forks from the same base product.  Apparently they differ in their menus and features.  I thought I’d give this branch a try.
