exNYCgb Forum

Last night and this morning I worked out how to set up a phpBB forum on the exNYCgb.

It’s for the ex-members of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain, of whom I am a member. I have a great sense of satisfaction at being able to do this. Installation was simple, once I’d worked out the name of the database and its DNS path. With the press of a button it was done, and the forums and categories were set up in no time.

Having played around a little with PostNuke I found the Administrator controls in phpBB far more intuitive and simple to use. Top marks! All I have to work out now is how to transfer the forum to another site when I finally upgrade the exNYCgb webspace. Hmmm…..

Oh! The forum can be found at
