Thx for info :)

I suppose I could use a Drupal forum else, phpbb ?

Anyhow, what I need is more than just simple forum thing hehe ^^ So I certainly hope I can change some stuff within existing user management systems OR add to them..

As for the Ads.. I need them:) I am volunteer working, and I need a money boost to travel around, funny enough, it is about once a month I travel :p

Edit:
I looked up the whole Adblocker thing, thank you ! :) I will definetly put a Disclaimer up and ask people to turn it off for my website :)[/QUOTE]

Yea you could use just about any forum or CMS system. SMF has the easiest set up (SSI.php) this lets you use a number of build in functions, but you can also use other functions built into SMF (like BB tags on your website). In the past I used phpbb, but it was a pain in the ass to use, and at time it wouldn't work, they don't have a built in function for using phpbb on a custom php website. I've never used Drupal, but I would think they would have a way to do it. I wouldn't think of Simple Machine forum as a simple forum, in my opinion it has more and better features than phpbb. Enough so that I converted a three year old phpbb database over to SMF two or so years ago.

All you can do is try the ads, but I have a feeling that they won't work out very well. I use Ad block plus, and I've never disabled it for a website. You can possible stop people from viewing your website if they have an ad blocker, but the likelihood is that they just won't view it. The website that I had ads on in the past got around 2000 (unique) hits a month, and well lets just say it wasn't going to cover the costs, let alone travel. Even with the ad blockers shut off, most people still don't click them.

Actually, if you're considering building a community site, I'd take a look at either BuddyPress (for WordPress) or Drupal Commons.

I haven't actually gotten around to trying out Drupal Commons, but I've heard incredible things about it. BuddyPress I have used and it's dead simple to setup a full-blown community hub with it.

Both of these solutions include integrated forums too, so you wouldn't need to install a forum software alongside them.

Weebly is way too simplified => way too limited (my experience, true story)

Also CSS3 and HTML5 isn't too complicated. HTML5 is even simplier than HTML4 (i mean simple website, not all HTML5 fancy features)
