Site Suggestion, + Classified Matters Launched

Post by x12ag3x on Thu Jan 08, 2009 1:28 am

Well, lately Ive gotten more into web & graphics design, and Ive experimented with both Html & PHP scripting, and PHP/MySql forum software(Phpbb3, vBulletin, SMF, e107) and have realized the great potential to building a better community they have. I personally think that this site needs an upgrade, from this to a dedicated server running one of the latest forum software. As I have been an admin for the past while on this site, I feel like I haven't been doing my part in helping to make this a better community/forum altogether, so I thought I'd get on that. Being Axl is the founder of the site, this choice is completely up to him. Currently, I am running e107 on a very reliable free web host, known as Classified Matters (Which isnt completley finished)and I am very proud of the amount of capabilities e107 has compared to other forum software. I will post a few links just so everyone here can take a look.

FreeWebHosts
These webhosts are free, but still reliable. For more space & bandwidth you must purchase one.
-Freehost10(This is what I currently use. Lots of uptime, 5 gigs of space and lots of bandwidth)
-Freehostia
-ExtrovertHost

Forum Software
All of these are free, besides vBulletin & IP Board
-vBulletin
-IP Board
-SMF
-PHPbb3(The Dedicated server type, not the same as this)
-E107(What I currently use and am very happy with.

There are many more forum software brands & names, but these are the most popular. For a full list, please visit this
link hosted by wikiPedia.

Once again, this choice can be made as a group or single person, Axl. It can be tedious and annoying, but the people her are pretty smart and should easily figure this out. If however, you choose this new method, do not hesitate to ask me, as I have set up the versions I listed above, and if you wanted I could complete it entirely for you, setting up the database and all.

Wow, sorry for the long read, I should probabley thank you for your time and consideration on this topic.
lol Bye for now.
Also please tell me your thoughts on this site.

It is up to the whole team as far as I'm concerned, I'd be nothing without them, but it is fine by me, anything you need to make duplicates should be in the admin panel except the codes, I can get those if you want since I'm the only person with that classification. Make an account on the other sites (Video Portal and Main Site) to get the admin rights there and you can get the codes for them, other than that have at it and let me see your work!

Well if you need I could set it all up for you guys, like the database thing and all that stuff with the software & webhost you want. Then bock could do all the needed graphical work, being hes the best at it here, and the same thing with Alex but with the configuration settings.
A simple overview of the softwares:
SMF
Its free. Basically a copy of vBulletin, it has a unique layering system that the others don't, meaning the banner is, say layer 1, the board itself is layer 2, and the footer is level 3, and such. So if you wanted to make an actual site in dreamweaver you would be able to integrate it easily into the site, using the layer technology. You can find some pretty cool themes for free.

vBulletin
Not free. About 100 bucks for a years liscense, but probable the best. It has a portal, which SMF does not. Not a very advanced skin system, giving you less advantage for GFX everywhere.

Phpbb
Similar to this, but uses a more advanced coding system, enabling more features and cool stuff.

e107
I find this one the best. Its pretty much a free website software, very customizable, and the forum comes as a plugin, but has the same customizability as the others, so the website system is like a bonus.

IP Board
Pretty good, It costs about the same as vBulletin, but you can get the same quality from SMF. Those who have used invisionfree should know what this is like.

I think your best choice would be e107. I know an awesome site for themes if you do not wish to code your own. I might even consider buying a them, then possible use it on my site and share it with you. Good themes for it are only about 15 dollars. You guys should be able to cook up a great theme by yourselves though.

Ok I was bored and did it. The URL is hntest.freehost10.com/smf/
OR: /e107/
OR: /phpbb/

So basically go to "hntest.freehost10.com/" and after the slash, enter the software you'd like to preview. Tell which one you like best. Also, look around at skins to see the visual possibilities of each software.
Some good places are:
http://akirapowered.org/download.php?list.2 for e107 (best of e107 I think)
http://www.dzinerstudio.com/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=cat60 for SMF themes (Best of SMF I think.)
ANd PHPbb are fairly similar to the design of this site.

This is confusing...
Anyhow, would you be using HTML coding? I can get a ton of books on it at my library and I could help a ton.
Anyhow, I'm taking 3D Digital Design and Imaging the day after monday. First period.
I'll finally learn how to use photoshop!
But, you can be assured that I'll still use paint.

I am putting x12ag3x and Bock into the position of overseeing this project, allow me to see your progress, I may make changes of my own.

Html codes are used to make many of the site's functions and CSS often defines the look and effects, the "Razzle Dazzle" of the site, and it can also control how it is organized. PHP codes usually have defined presets making them easy to use, such as the username code which we discussed before. SQL is used for databasing and is used for things such as logins. There are many others including things like ASP and ROR, there are many other kinds of less popular codes too. Finally, the lowest level code is Binary Code (101011001).

Yeah, because if I did it in photoshop it would be too high-def and take up much more memory than large blocks.

It's not really his Xbox LIVE account, he just put that in, he doesn't play on XBL.

Which reminds me, I am removing the content from that field from your account Bock, that way nobody gets confused.
