Btw, for new members or those who haven't seen it, here's a re-cap of SGMDF's first year.

c'mon TACO, WHAT'S THE HOLD UP? i'm in to help with whatever. don't make me get a Tick Twister out on you.

even if not getting a nice domain name, there must at least be forums to set up free that get indexed on google at least. this forum's popularity and importance could easily increase with that.


Any help appreciated. I've used other free forum software before without any positive results.

I'm sorry, I didn't see your post from October.

I use Textpattern as a CMS and FluxBB for forum software.

http://textpattern.com/

http://fluxbb.org/

I have been working with one of the developers of FluxBB to do some customizations for Bad Harvest, and I am thinking about having him do a major integration of those two applications.  For example, you post an article with Textpattern and instead of commenting on the article, users can post in a forum thread automatically started when the article is posted.

I have combined Textpattern and FluxBB (or PunBB, FluxBB's precursor) on Guntards.net and Mesatactical.com:

http://www.mesatactical.com/

http://www.guntards.net/

They are combined, but not really integrated, except visually.

Another Textpattern site I have set up is here:

http://heidijanemusic.com/

Once I set it up I let the site owner do all the updating.  She hasn't called me for any assistance since the week I put it on-line.

FluxBB is really a very good forum application.  It is clean and simple, with few bells and whistles, and personally I like that.

Nice, seeing (& listening) to the video, Tim!
Where's the sequel?

so what's the deal with hosting...I see a bunch of free forum hosters (like the one that's being used) but I guess this limits capability? best to just buy  a domain name and put it up there, right? is it hard to transfer archives?

Yes.

Shouldn't be hard.

I hate to sound like a dick (though I am one), but I can't be bothered to do this at the moment. I have no motivation to do this right now. Right now, as in I will later. I don't know exactly when. Sorry.
