    WordPress or something else?

    I have my own domain now and I'm trying to build a website. I'm currently using WordPress and I had a few issues with the permissions as far as uploads are concerned (which I think I fixed). I'm considering trying a different kind of site format. Maybe a forum. I like WordPress but, I want to do something a bit different, I think. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I have some experience setting up wordpress websites, as well as customizing themes, setting up galleries and spam control, if you need some help, I'd be happy to help.

    Well i think that if you want to make your own website that coming here was a good idea. but this is your website. so it should resemble what you want it to be. but i think that you are one smart person

    with my site, I've written my own Skin theme and then made a similar skin for the wordpress addon that the webserver had. Otherwise, its all my own PHP and HTML design but the gallery is a free script I found..

    What kind of thing are you looking for?

    I appreciate the offer. ^_^
    In fact, my site just crashed not long ago. I get these errors saying, "Database error," or something along those lines. I think it's a wordpress issue. I'm not sure though. I figured out a few things about permissions and such, so I think I'm good on that area but I need to get my site up and running again. Any idea why there's an error establishing a database connection?

    I kind of want something similar to vBulletin, if wordpress doesn't stop giving me problems. I actually was having a good run with wordpress until my site crashed. So, I think it's time to find a different format.

    My suggestion would be to check to see if your webhost has an option to install Wordpress for you in your site's control panel.

    Most do.

    That way, if anything goes wrong, you can support ticket it with your host.

    I may have to support ticket it then. It's a free webhosting site and they never gave me an option to install Wordpress.

    Do you think uninstalling and reinstalling Wordpress would help?
