i have a Joomla-proficient friend who has offered to help me put up a template for a Joomla-centric online forum/ bulletin board.
he recommended Dreamhost.
is the format we see here the “default forum software” for Dreamhost ? i understand that there is some PHP and SQL support.
if i buy Vbulletin, how does it load ? is it like installing most pieces of software with some sysadmin and file permissions thrown in ?
the initial template we’re going to use has 2-5 categories with approx. 4 sub-categories in each category, just as a template.
i would like to be able to use a “full-featured” software that allows pictures, signatures, emoticons, etc.
i don’t see those here. i’m not sure if that means the bulletin board software that comes with a Dreamhost account (is some basic BB S/W included in the price of purchase, the $280 for 3 years option, for example ?)
thanks a lot for any replies.
