hi FM

the only advice i could think of is to do what i did. i created a forum with http://www.freeforums.org and then incorporated it with my website.

you can see my website at http://www.gamedemonarcade.com

notice i have a link to my forum at http://forum.gamedemonarcade.com

that's great

first off, never mind the control panel, it is useless.

go to your forum and login, you should have been given the url in your email

at the bottom you should see "Go To Administration Panel" click on it and login again

that will bring you to the administration panel

take a look at the left side. take a few moments to click around and learn how everything works

you will be spending the majority of your time in: "Forum Admin - Management" ; "Configuration" ; "Logo Settings" ; "Styles Admin - Add". these are the important ones, all the rest you should get more familiar with on your own as time goes by

"Forum Admin - Management" - Is where you can add the main categorizes for your forum as well as all the mini forums that are under those categories. for example, in my forum, "about the forum" is a category, and "Newbies, please start here" "Introduction Lounge" and "Suggestions for the forum." are forums.

"Configuration" - is where you set your general settings (read the questions carefully)

"Logo Settings" - Upload a logo if you have one

"Styles Admin - Add" - I recommend you do this first choose the style that you want, they have a lot. i chose "aliens". After you choose the style and press "install", go to configuration and make sure that the style you want is chosen for "Default Style".

that's the basics. if you need more help just ask.
