Is there a list somewhere of standard features that come with the forum? ie: that you don't need to get by downloading an addon? I'm concerned that once I purchase the software at the initial cost, virtually all the features I would want on my forum will also cost me. These things add up. $50 for a gallery, $X custom sidebars, etc, etc...
Also, renewal time...is that just for support, or am I actually paying a yearly fee for the licence to use the software?
Ive done a lot of reading already, and messed around with the demo forum a bit, but as a novice forum operator, and having limited knowledge of code, a lot of this is daunting, so I do appreciate the help.
Lastly, I wonder if there might be some members here who now have criticisms or headaches to gripe about, (constructively), after having used the software for a bit, which might give me a better idea of what I might be getting myself into. Hindsight is 20/20 as they say.
Thanks in advance for your time,
