  1. Amember Integrates with almost every blog, forum, and payment processor out there.
  2. I haven't used it yet, but this looks pretty slick: h*tp://getvanilla.com/tour/posting/ Vanilla Forum
  3. I was fibbing about my ridiculously high score, hoping to stir the pudding. But I did just crank out 17 without much sweat.
  4. Two quick things. You can address some of these header issues by putting this at the very beginning of the php code (still can't have space or line break or any output before <?php) ><?php ob_start(); The other thing is that you should consider replacing $_REQUEST with $_POST (or $_GET). It's more specific, and therefore more secure.
  5. I've been using Google reader for a while. I like that I get a ton of archived material that I wouldn't otherwise if I were to use Thunderbird or Firefox Live Bookmarks. But it's a little clunky. I'd like to hear what some of you are using for RSS feeds. Thanks.
  6. heyguy pretty much hit the nail on the head, but for the record, WP all the way.
  7. Ha... That's a good one. I'm pretty sure that would be an unpopular choice... but I'd be happy to oblige.
  8. OJB, I'm interested to know your experience with Google apps, specifically email. Have you run into any problems giving out free emails with whatever@yoursite.com? Any concerns that one or two bad apples will get your domain blacklisted for abusing the free email account? I'm asking because I've been approved for this service through Google and just haven't pulled the trigger on it yet. Thanks.
  9. TCH-Andy, Messy to code? Can you elaborate? It's actually the very process I use on many sites, and was wondering why you think it's messy.
  10. Looks like I'm running a risk of being sued for giving bad advice myself.
  11. Not a lawyer -- but you're allowed to write whatever you want online. For example, people can write about banned supplements, pills, etc and stir up controversy about the FDA preventing sick people from getting the homeopathic medicine that will "cure" them... and be totally safe. But it's another thing entirely to sell the homeopathic pills and advertise them as a cure for XYZ. Another example, if you live in Las Vegas and I instruct you to "drive to Los Angeles in one hour" and that means you would have to break the speed limit to do so, then I'm still not liable for your actions even though you followed my advice. That said, you should have disclaimers all over your site.
  12. Plenty of tools available at no cost. http://www.google.com/search?q=google+site...tor&spell=1
  13. "Best"... from SEO standpoint, usability, ease of upkeep? If it's a permanent redirect, use a 301 in the htaccess file. I think your point about the message staying up if the target website is having an issue is incorrect. I think the visitor would be redirected to the problem page.
