Well, I'm sure that most of you know that IPBfree provides free forum spaces for people who wish to mod their own forums. I've been dibbling and dabbling around with it and I'm pretty much done with it. I'm just missing one key feature--a friggin' GALLERY!
I've searched all over the net, and most gallery modifications, you either have to pay for, or aren't compatible with IPBfree 2.0 (Which is ironically the same thing as IPB 1.3). IPB claims that IPBfree will have a gallery mod, but that statement was make a few months back.
Does anyone know of a place to get a gallery mod without having to register for a new forum site? Or does anyone know of a CSS code that will create a gallery for me? (That last question is pretty random and I doubt it's really possible, but what the hey?)
I also need a blog mod, as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated. ^_^
Making your own site I see.
I do not really know much about it except for a few I tried to make, but had to quit do to lack of interest.
Coppermine is a good gallery...but, I am not sure if it works with IPBfree 2.0
There is also a Gallery called....Gallery. Actually the one I think is compatible is Gallery 2
Gallery2:Download - Gallery Codex
Sorry if that is not what you wanted, but I try lol.
What I would suggest actually spending some money and purchasing a domain name and server space (I got my domain name Aceman67.com and server space for just under 50 bucks for a whole year), and then use PHPbb2 plus, which is a heavily modified version of the PHPbb2 system that ships with a Gallery plugin already installed (Among a host of other features) PHPBBPlus.net :: Portal.
That way you get guaranteed service, you control what you can put on your website, and you can modify it to your hearts content.
Then there are upsides to having your own domain name, one of them being creating your own email address (mines [email protected], and I have it set up so that anything that is sent there gets forwarded to my Gmail account)
But I don't know why you would want to run your own forum anyways... there's a perfectly good one that you're already a member of *cough*animeonline*cough* ;)
As for running a blog, go no farther then just running a Wordpress install (With the NextGen gallery installed), which Is what I use and it works perfectly for what I need.
Thanks aceman67, I appreciate the input.
