Just to say that I am not sure where this question best sits so feel free to move. I am planning to purchase XenForo shortly and start a forum for the first time. However, my knowledge of programming is non-existent, and I was wondering how much I would need to know. I have identified books on HTML, XHTML and CSS as well as PHP and MySQL which I very happy to purchase so I can learn. However, I just did not want to spend hours doing this only to find that I do not actually need most of the information due to auto-installers etc. So I would be grateful for advice please. Thank you.
