im planning on starting a moto forum and was just wondering where to begin. What software do you guys reccomend? i do like OT's layout but its probably super expensive for the software right? i may plan to go with vbulletin i already bought the domain will buy hosting some questions i have is - do i still need to make a design like a planned in dreamweaver or is taht part of the forum software, where i can just upload a banner etc? in terms of making money, how would i do this? is it per/hits or should i go with ads? if i wanted to go with google ads how would i begin incorporating the ads to the page so that it only pops up when the user is at a LOG IN loading screen so its not distracting. thanks!!
