  • Newbie has some questions...

    I have zero experience with this whole process so any help is appreciated.

    I'm going to order vbulletin, but I need a webhost first. I think I'm going to go with Perfect Presence, but now I need to know which plan to sign up on initially and how much does it cost monthly for an average size board...say around 5,000 members and more.

    Also, as far as designing templates do I need to purchase Adobe Photoshop?

    I know I'm forgetting something...anyways, HELP!!

    Thanx
    Shut your mouth.

    8 other people have looked at this and not one of you could at least give me a guesstimate?!

    I'm just asking for a little help here...
    Shut your mouth.

      Alright, alright:

      1.) I don't know much about that kind of stuff, but I'd say that the Gold Plan looks about right. You might want to look through this thread to get an idea of the amount of bandwidth people consume.

      2.) You don't need PhotoShop, but it helps for customizing the buttons and adding images to the templates. You can use vBulletin just fine without it, though.

        Thank you

        One more question...is Photoshop the only application I could customize templates in?

        Could I use MS Front Page or Netstudio Web Grapics?
        Shut your mouth.

          Well, you can really use any program that you want. Heck, I made all of the graphics in my forums entirely with Flash 5.

          Microsoft FrontPage could be useful if you don't know that much HTML, but vB comes with an in-browser template editor, so it's really not necessary. And I've never heard of Netstudio Web Graphics, so I couldn't really say.

          Oh, and have you checked out the Admin Demo yet? You can see how the templates work by scrolling all the way to the bottom of the left frame and clicking "Modify" under the templates section. But the demo seems to be screwed up right now, so a moderator is going to have to reset it first. Here's the URL if you haven't seen it already:

            Good news, I didn't want to have to buy more software.

            You've been extremely helpful...thanx.
