Thanks for doing my suggestion, You did it fast after I posted it too, Although I suggest moving to a different board service, A more popular one, Proboards perhaps although people I know severely overuse that therefore its kinda lame to me too.

:) Yes it was a good suggestion.

I don't expect too much traffic so Nabble forums are good at the moment. Just a place to post things.

Regards

Escribo esto en español, espero que no te moleste, los próximos posts los escribiré en inglés para que este todo en el mismo idioma y no haya líos.

Te recomendaría algún otro sistema como foroactivo, yo siempre usé ese para algunos foros que hice hace tiempo y nunca me dio problemas, además es fácil de usar y puedes personalizarlo mucho, tanto las opciones y configuraciones como el aspecto y los temas. Otra ventaja es que si tu foro es medianamente grande, como podría llegar a ser en un futuro (ponte unos 2000/3000 usuarios registrados y un tráfico mas o menos constante de unas 15-20 personas online) te regalan un dominio .net/.com/.org... sin que tengas que pagar absolutamente nada. No obstante los subdominos que te dan al principio no están nada mal y puedes elegir entre varios, por ejemplo .foroactivo.com

Muy buena idea la del foro, ahora se podrán aportar más cosas y comentar por aquí más facilmente.

Si decides cambiarte a foroactivo puedes pedirme ayuda para cualquier cosa que necesites, estoy bastante familiarizado con él y si te parece podría ayudarte con la configuración y demás.

Bueno suerte con esto :P

Hi, I will answer in spanish like you, only this time :P

En principio busqué foros para blogger para integrarlo en el mismo y Nabble daba esa posibilidad, aunque no se si voy a usarla. Como integración me refiero a que se puede meter como widget o dentro de un post, ....

El foro lo creé en 5 minutos y, de momento, creo que es suficiente. Si veo que la cosa crece seguramente me pasaré a un foro más "pro". Lo que dices de dominio gratis es interesante.

La idea del foro, todo y que ya la tenía en mente, fué de un usuario del blog (Lukez). No lo había hecho antes ya que no creía que nadie fuera a escribir en él. Veremos como evoluciona esto.

Si cambio a foroactivo no te preocupes que te daré un toque :P

Un saludo y gracias por comentar

I forgot to say that foroactivo have a service that allows you to create very good blogs (http://www.hazblog.com/) and associate them to your forum. However I think that you can also asociate blogspot or another blog. Also you can make a homepage with html and link it to the forum and the blog.

Like you say, actually it's not necessary to change the forum, but if the comunity grow you have to think in it.

I think I'll participate a lot in this forum and I hope that more people join the forum!

I don't support foromotion (forgive me if I mistyped the name) - Although some parts sound good, (Free domain, blog attachments, I used google translate) Proboards has a good list of options too:

- Custom theme and color (lots of options here)
- Live Chat (has to be set-up separately, And, of course is optional.)
- Manage forum ranks
- Manage banned words (for example, curse words)
- Manage banned forum names (For example, ****you as a registered user where the * would be a swear word would be bannable)
- Manage login, register, home, etc images.

There's more then that but i can't of them all now.

Yes LukeZ, I've used that service in more than one ocasion and It's great!

-You can customize it a lot, and it's very easy to use, as you say it have an optional ChatBox, where the moderators can also kick or ban the people from the chat and the users can resolve their problems easier and talk with other people.

-One of the best aspects in my opinion is his administration panel, you can change easily a lot of things and manage groups, users, themes, smilyes, post options... Also you can add a "coin" system and much more like a  portal with forum news and another important things.

-You can add scripts and html pages. For example you can add a tranlator to change forum language, or change the default language from Spanish (default) to, for example English.

-Also you have an image galery, a calendar... and you can change the forum version (phpbb/2/3, punbb, invision...) anytime. It haven't got user limit and it has a free image hosting :)

Oh, and the name of the service is "foroactivo" in Spanish, so in english would be "activeforum" :P, here in Spain it's the more famous forum service, so it's a really good service.

But supermalparit is here the "boss", and for the moment I agree with him, we don't still need to change to other forum.

I don't know nothing about scripting D: but if you create a forum with this service, in the Administration Panel you have a section (modules) where you will see at the botton of the page "HTML & JAVASCRIPT" here you can play with that things xD

There's a support forum where there are some tutorials (for example how to do the translator) but it's in spanish. Wait a moment... I'm not sure but I think there is an english forum... if you want to see the spanish forum click here: http://asistencia.foroactivo.com
