    The reason they are charging you 2000$ for PHP and MySQL scripting is because they are probably doing it custom. If you have any knowledge you can easily setup your own forums like these ones at tweaktown. They dont require to much scripting knowledge. If your going to have access to the ftp which I am sure your going to...put your own news script on there. You could get both a forum and a news script from www.hotscripts.com. It won't look as great as it would if it was professionally done for 2000$ but it'll get the job done. If you got the money and your planning on having a populated site go for the custom scripting. Or try asking them to install PHP Nuke, or Postnuke. Hope I helped you out.

    yes, I nderstand that now. A custom job was not what I was looking for (can't afford it :no: )

    I found a designer that did evrything within my budget with real easy tools to manage all the sections myself.

    excuse my ignorance but what do you mean FTP access to access news script? you mean an FTP server set up for downloads and stuff? I am a newbie and I appreciate all the help you can provide.

    thanks again!!

    Thanks and thanks!

    Yeah I paid a guy to do the graphics design on top and the splash screen, I don't really want to dedicate myself to designing. Now I have a lot of work to do with all this articles and stuff. I'd like soemone to do it for a monthly fee or per achievements (better deal). I don't have a lot of money for this though. I agree with you man the layout is not very user friendly yet. The content is not polished. I have a friend musician who will be posting articles about game soundtracks, and a couple of gamers to help me with the reviews.

    I am open to business proposals if you have ideas about the layout man. didn't see a link to your website in your signature.

    the little underlined ZTi is the link its only been up 2 weeks and im still updating it daily

    i am an avid PC/Sony/Xbox/gamer and can help with graphics and design all the artwork and logos and my site are done by me but im not to good at the authoring my self, ive only just got into it but it seems easy and i would really like to see what magenta can do in the hands of talent

    as for the layout it seems to serve its pupose but its just not to my liking colors dont appeal and i dont like scrolling down long pages but will if i must for good content as will most ppl

    couple of things:

    1) I hope you got permission from the relevant folks to use their images, especially the Lara Croft one at the front of the website.... otherwise watch out for a lawsuit!


    2) sorry this comes a bit late, but a good easy (free) forum can be got from here

    3) (ok so more than a couple); your site doesn't have a "mission statement".... I'm a bit lost as to the point of it, frankly.:confused:

    but it looks very pretty.
