PostSubject: Need help with my forum?   Mon Mar 18, 2013 7:25 am

Hello, I am hoping someone can help me. I set up a 'free forum' using this website, but I purchased a web host from another site. I am a complete idiot when it comes to trying to set this stuff up. I have no clue what I am doing and I am just hoping for the best. A long time forum was recently closed down and no one else was willing to make a new forum, so I offered, but I have no idea what I am doing. All I keep hearing about is servers, web hosts, domains. Uh.. if this was a free forum, why do I need all that other stuff? Can someone please help me and give me instructions I can understand on how to set up a forum? Thank you.

Your question is too board. What exactly are you having trouble with?

Please change the title of your topic, that is related to your question/issue, so that other users will be able to find their question/issue using the search engine.

If you view the the Administration Panel at the bottom of your forum index all the information to adding things to your website should help you there. It's not a matter of needing stuff they're just features and what your website already contains after you created the basics. Forumotion allows you to be creative with your own ideas. Also if you need help applying some thing to your website I would recommend viewing the Tips an Tricks for and Frequently asked Questions to help you out more. Hope this helps.

Like I said, I was wondering if someone could help me with instructions on how to move my forum, the free one I made with Phpbb to my domain that I paid for that is good for a year?

Domain has got nothing to do with hosting.
Domain is just the url.

Please explain more as to what you really want to do.

I made a free forum using formation.com, but don't I need to buy my own domian or web host for the forum so that I own it and formation.com doesn't own it and I've been trying to find out how long it is free for, but I can't find an answer on that either. I figured people here might know.

Buying a domain name does not mean you own your forum. It just changes the forum's link. The forum you create is free. We do not have access to the forum's database. There are things you have to use credits to do on your forum, like remove ads.
