    This all sounds way too good to be true.

    EDIT: Wait, your signup link leads me to 404 page error.

    How about a demo?
    Like a full-admin power demo, so people can see what the ACP looks like, and what features it can do.

    Please validate your website here and the homepage is a little too "narrow"

    It's working fine for me.

    Just signup and see for yourself, takes 3 minutes.

    I'm not good at CSS/HTML standards, and I could care less about it being efficient since you won't see much of a performance difference.

    I only care about the PHP backend of the site working well/efficient/safely.

    Dude, if you don't keep with the standards your site is going to suck.
    Meh. Fine. Testing the thing out now.

    Things I've noticed you should change:
    1. When you register, and go to the page where it tells you its sending the mail, make it so it doesn't show the password. Make it show "*".
    2. Change the default theme back to the MyBB default.
    3. Delete the categorys it comes with. People are going to do it anyway.


    Other than that, the forums work, they're fast, and easy to set up.

    Why..?

    Why..?

    Thats default with MyBB.

    If your just going to post useless things, don't post at all. I mean I get the HTML/CSS standard but the rest were just retarded.

    If you don't care about HTML/CSS standards why make a site?

    I can't even look at your site using Opera, the "hover" version of your buttons don't work VALIDATE your site or don't make websites. I'm not talking about performances or how fast your website loads I'm talking about standards, not all people have the same resolution or browser.

    read this please: http://validator.w3.org/docs/why.html



    So you rather keep the site unvalidate or "buggy" only because your PHP is ok?

    The only thing I didn't write from scratch is the MyBB script, and I'm working on a PHPBB script right now.

    I think I may just download an html template.

    Or learn it, before you even work with php. It's like trying to ride a bike before learning to walk, you need to learn HTML in order to properly use PHP.

    I will list some problems with the HTML and CSS, to help you.

    • It needs a DOCTYPE
    • The JavaScript functions should be in the head section
    • Those JavaScript functions could be optimized, probably into 1 fuction
    • You seem to be using HTML and XHTML. If you want to use XHTML, the img tags should be <img src="" alt="Some text" />
    • You do not have any meta tags
    • <html> should be <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
    • You need a meta tag for the charset: <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    • Please use divs for the layout, rather than tables (and is that a <center> I see??)
    • You should really specify more of the style in the CSS file, rather than in the HTML file.

    That is all that I found with a quick look-through. There may be more though.

    Because sometimes people register from public places or other situations when there is someone next to or behind them and they wouldn't want their password to be seen ;).

    Yeah, I'm a webdesigner. Your probably just a guy who is doing this to make money (not trying to be rude of offensive).

    Seriously though. If you site looks like crap, who is going to use it?
    It's cool that your hosting forums for people, but you have to make everything look good.

    Oh, and phpBB sucks. Don't use it. Ever. MyBB is the only decent free one.

    Dude, have you ever look at the ACP for phpBB?
    I have MyBB, SMF, and phpBB on my private-use server. I look at everything daily. MyBB is the fastest, easiest to use, best looking default, and best ACP.
    The two forums I administer use MyBB. I've used phpBB in the past (along with smf). MyBB is the best free forum software.

    Agreed, but it's still good to give people variety.
