New Forum help ( 04:41:55 ThuSep 7 2017 )

Jim...
I'd like to donate to help out with any new forum you may have to setup.
Is the donate option on the current board still going to work for you? I don't want to use it if money is going into a black hole somewhere!
What is the best way currently to donate?

Dick, thank you for your generosity over the years. Your last donation to the forums was enough to carry us for a very long time.

Don't use the forum donate button because it goes directly to Best Boards, there is no way for me to apply it anywhere else.

Once I can locate and get forums back online I will let folks know if financial help is needed

Thank you again Dick, I'll keep you in the loop.

Jim,

I don't get it.

The "CODE" used here for generating everything you see and click on is simple Hypertext Markup Language (HTML).

You can "right click" and select "view source" to see this page in HTML.

Grade school kids learn this stuff! Pages can be converted from MS Word and Adobe PDF into HTML without writing any code!

There are millions of HTML coders that can take this and FIX it and improve the CODE.

That is not the code I am talking about Chuck. I was talking about the code that the board runs under, not the html.

Perhaps "code" is not the right word, but my limited understanding is that programming requires coding. This is not the same as html at all.

Code is what creates the software that runs applications. html is the language that websites consist of.

Jim,

PHP is the language used by most Bulletin Boards to connect web pages to a Database.

A few use Perl or SQL.

The issue is the COST of going to a Fee based host like InVision. Looks like the cost is somewhere north of $500 to $100. depending on membership. It is used by other GOLD mining Forums.

Thanks Chuck, I was aware of those things. I am working to try to use Invision right now. I am specifically working on hosting for it, there may be a free, or low cost host available to me. If I can get it done this way the cost would only be for purchase and upgrades.

I am getting information and help from Steve Herschbach, who is a friend and uses Invision on his metal detecting forums.
