    Hello!​
    Happy to find you! ​
    While I was searching for other Admin support forums I found AT. I appreciate the admin support and if there is anything I can offer back in thanks for the info, I'll try!​
    I'm redeveloping my website. It's a daunting task. Admin forums are helpful to be part of and can only enrich my knowledge and craft!​
    Thanks for being here for us!​

    I am using vBulletin. I'm re-doing my whole website right now, which is why I'm here at AT and other similar websites...to gain knowledge, to learn and avoid costly mistakes and to likewise share any of my experiences that may be helpful to others. My new website venue and design will suit my few regular members, which are deep thinking women that love a good debate. My first website was geared towards my daughter's interests at the time and mom's that loved to share the same hobby with their kids, which was Webkinz. She grew out of that hobby. In my new forum setting I'm blending the best of both worlds, my daughter's new hobby which is Wii and Xbox, their characters and stories and then what I like which are thoughtful discussions about the big topics, such as Politics, Religion, Economics and whatever else seems to apply at any given moment in time.

    My website is "under construction" right now. As soon as it's closer to being ready for viewing I'll post the link here. I'm also undergoing the Trademark and Copyright process and my attorney advised on holding off on switching the URL and all of the relevant new changes until we are closer along the process. I promise to share when it's up and going. :)

    My website is a hot mess right now. Last year, the webmaster that I had been using for a few years disappeared after I paid her in full for another large job I hired her for .... doing what I have hired my new webmaster to do now. It's very hard to find specialized talent (vBulletin, Wordpress, coding and graphic work) and also difficult to find people with both talent and integrity. I've solved the problem of integrity by locating and hiring my webmaster through www.Elance.com. I'm so grateful to have found her.

    Here are the hacks/mods I'm using in vBulletin:

    Wordpress for Homepage, vBadvanced CMPS

    iTrader, YAAS (Yet another award system), VaultWiki, Glow Host Spam-O-Matic, VSa (Adv Forum Rules). VSa (Adv Forum Statistics), PHPKD (Adv Quick Reply Ultimate), Top Posters, ibProArcade, Smilies below text area, Picture and Album Gallery for vB4.

    I like your Xenforo Software. Very up to date. If I wasn't so committed to vBulletin I'd likely switch.


    Have a nice day All!
