  • NEWB Questions

    Hey guys/Gals as you can see I'm a newb so please bare with me. I want to make myself a forum using Vbulletin, but before I purchase it I would like to know what the deal? Now I have never done programming or web design so I have no clue if this is something that I could do on the fly or do you need to fluent in programming or Web Design? I know my way around a computer, but I have never tried to do anything like this

    The good news is that you don't have to know any programming or even HTML to get your board up and running. To install plugins you will need a little bit more knowledge but the plugin install instructions are typically really easy to follow (e.g. "find this .... replace with this ..." kind of thing).

    To get a unique style and customise the look and feel of the site beyond basic colour and image changes you will need to understand a bit of html.

    One step at a time though. Try the demo and see how you get on. I suspect you'll never look back like most of us

        You can run one installation of the software. It doesnt matter what you change your mind too for running it as long as there is only one installation.
