    I just wanted to know if you could get a portal with a free host or would you have to pay for it?

    I think postnuke has more features, it has lots of addons as well.
    but to be honest i hate them both.

    Well VirtuaNews is Superior and IBFPortal is neater, but i really don't like portals. they are too messy and i think that its easier to make your own system then spend time on hacking the portal and modifying it to your needs.

    let me rephrase that... I've tried almost all the 'nukes and I've tried various PHPBB/InvisionBB portals

    Do you have php and MySQL running on your server?

    thanks Valone, I will try it!

    Benny, i was thinking if I could host it from some site, which offers PHP/mySQL etc...?

    I was going to put it on my server as a last resort
