    Thanks for all the information, that definately makes me feel a lot more comfortable about signing up here soon. I had 1 more questions.

    When I do events like a beta code event or something for a game, is there an addon or app that I can use to limit it to logged in players only once?

    I could just load the codes into the addon and it just generates 1 per user.

    Thanks, andrew

    Just a few questions
    Hey everyone,

    New to SQL Database and all that stuff, but I know a little about programming, and I have a free Forums right now.

    1. When you are buying the hosting service from someone other than IPB, is there certain things I should be looking for? I know I seen in another post, that you should have php 5 or something and some other things.

    2. If I buy the web hosting from someone other than IPB, I could install joomla on it and connect the IPB forums will it correct? With doing this would I be able to link certain things like articles to the homepage? Sorta like a recent topics.

    3. I know very little of mySQL Database, and FTP and things like such? Is there any good tutorials that IPB offers? and is it a big part of the IPB forums system?

    4. If you are a beginner, how easy are the admin tools to adjust too? I tried the Demo and everything just seems a lot of things I don't know about.

    5. How easy is it to install Templates, and edit them? Also how easy is it to install add-ons?

    Thanks for the information, a little new to this, and just want to start off with a lot of information.
