MY HISTORY: Back in 2004 several of us started communicating on a Yahoo Group and after a few years we finally evolved into starting Recumbent Riders International. While I had run a BBS via dialup (i.e. The Tutorboard) back in the days before the internet, I was vaguely aware of what it might take to create an online forum for our discussions. Luckily, we tripped across the vBulletin software which has always ran like a champ for us.

While I'm not a 'coder,' by utilizing some MODS on (and enough trial/error), we managed to customize the software so it's worked well for our purposes. As vBulletin began to decline, I began an earnest hunt for the best Forum Software out there that seemed to fit our needs. Xenforo was a clear winner, in my book!

I know little about PHP or MySQL and even less about xml and css, so most of my 'tweaking' has been limited to revising, or inserting code snippets here and there.
