You would have to send me your user id and password so I could figure out what is going on..
I am not that familiar with Yahoo, to be honest. It was always too big for my taste.
of course, another option, Maggie, is that if someone could volunteer room on their site, I could set up a phpbb board, or an eblah board (the software that D'Adamo uses). or maybe you could have your son do it, since you would have to give me access to your site, and I don't think you really want to do that over the long run. It would be better if your son, who already has access to your site, installed it.
I wish I could recommend this software, but I'm afraid that the software support at this point is minimal, and to keep up and maintain this type of board requires more work than what would be required with these other types of boards.
You don't have to be a geek to administer these other types of boards.
I don't want to volunteer my site, because I have limited space. The little board I have.. I limit the number of messages, and the oldest ones go off into oblivion. Plus.. I just don't want to administer another board.
