Well I hope I have the right section. I am at a serious crossroads that I need some serious counseling on. My website www.militarychallengecoin.net
is my baby. I am Air Force so I love to use this site to give back to the community and also make a little money to pay for my server. Anyway These are the current specs of what I am using:
phpBB2 2.0.19 (14 mods) with Bridge to CB
This is great and I have learned a lot doing this. However I hate that I have so many things integrated in becuase of upgrades, problems with logins, spam registries. I am trying to run a store and huge community all in one. I think I am failing though.
I do this all by myself and I need others inputs on this. I want to get something better, I want something smoother without sacrificing all the items in my store, all articles I have written, and all the users I have registered. I am trying to wait for Joomla 1.5 stable, phpBB3, and the upgraded Virtue mart to make things easier as far as DB upgrades.
My point to this long post is asking you...how can I get more friendly useablilty, better looking, and overall a site that just rocks to give the guys in the field and collecting something to be hooked on? I want to be #1 and I am not talking about SERPS (I am almost there now).
