 Post subject: Help with board please
PostPosted: Thu Jul 31, 2008 1:44 pm
  

I sure like the way you guys have set up this board. I would like to put one on my new site I'll be opening in October. Is it hard to set up or does it kind of run itself? Does it cost much to use?

I think it would be nice to have a place on my site where people can enjoy kicking this tarbaby. :-)

I'll be shutting down LetHerIn.org sometime in September when I get word that the Rock and roll hall of fame has rejected Melanie again. I realy don't expect them to let her in. But then, I could be wrong about the hall, we'll see.
Thanks,
Jim

The forums run on phpBB - there's a link at the bottom of the forum page. It's not too hard to set up, and doesn't cost anything. All you need is PHP and mySQL (database) on your host. If you aren't quite that technically savy, you may wish to try a free hosting place such as:

http://www.freeforumhost.com/index.hs

http://www.netfreehost.com/phpbb/

Just do a search - there's plenty out there, although I've never used any of them so can't comment on how good or bad they are. Even if you want to install your own forums - places like this will give you a good idea of how it all works.

One note, Netfreehost seems to be running phpBB 2.x while Freeforum host seems to be running the new phpBB 3.x just released a few months ago.

i've always wondered about the correct pronounciation of phpBB?
I mean, do you twiddle your forefinger over your lips while sayin' it? Or do you involve a generous amount of tongue between the lips?
Is there much spray involved?
Does version 3 use more emphasis on the BB or the php??

clearly being a tech kinda guy, I am interested in such details...
:roll:
