If anyone could give a percert of what chances :rolleyes: do i have to build my own forum without knowing programming .. Thanks a lot !

    The first thing you need to do is have / create a Database

    Snitz = ASP database

    VBulletin = mySQL forum

    Your host needs to support either.

    THe best thing to do is install IIS on your PC and play around with things like snitz, then if you break it , delete it and try again.

    Then when you have it worked out then upload it to your website

    I think if you download Snitz, in the actual .zip are some instructions

    Good luck !
