@ Seun, greetings Sir!. Please I need to know why you moved from SMF, I'm interested in building a forum as I have carved out a niche on what I want to focus on, what should I watch while using SMF? which one is better? do you mind sharing the name of the one you are currently using? As a starter, if I start with SMF, how easy is migrating to another software in future if the need be? how can I mail or contact you, can you be my mentor please? luciangel@ymail.com, is my mail incase. Thanks in anticipation.

Modified: Please what do you also think about phpBB. Explain please.

Good day sir, I am one of the great admirers of the nairaland invention,it has been a blessing and a gateway to ideas, entertainment and opportunities for me.
I am interested in forum building . I have gotten a niche(business) and I am considering paying a programmer to coding from a scratch(he is charging 150k).But ran into this discussion on nairaland that nairaland forum started from SMF and operated on that until last two years or so.
So I am asking for your advice concerning the best way to start giving what you already know(and men I really need to cut down cost!)
Also if there are surprises that I am to expect at the teething stage in terms of technical issues,time commitment ,promotion, moderation etc,any of such advice is welcome.have a great day

I use mybb. its free and I love it. Have you started yours?

What an old post. I'm back to announce that I finally achieved my dream. But like some people said, getting traffic is VERY tough. I salute the owner of nairaland (Seun) for achieving such a great site. My forum is at FarmersJoint.com . Still have great work to do.
You should optimise phoneview!

Only a mugu will charge less than 100K

I'm not talking about WordPress site.
Even WordPress users will charge high

Plus your forum doesn't even work on mobile.

It can be optimized for mobile. What programming language is it written?

My forum is from mybb, an open source platform. I will look for a plugin that will make it mobile friendly.

But that price u are calling is too high bro. How much will the buyers make? Making a forum popular isn't easy oo.

Your mouth is running but where you going?

You see your forum is even built on WordPress. No great site is built with WordPress.

Moreover, it does not comply with industry standard (mobile first).

When we call price you start to argue.
You still have so much work to do.

Is mybb built on WordPress? There are lots of successful forums that uses mybb - forums that are even more popular than NL. One of the best forum s/w is Xenforo and it cost about N58k. Why would someone choose NL-like forum over xenforo? My advice to interested people is this: Don't spend ur cash on forum s/w bc it will never make ur forum popular. Rather, spend it on promotion.
