The whole Domain thing...

Well yeah, the whole domain thing is starting to confuse me. I just recently started my own forum with all the forums and categories laid out, but the whole domain thing is confusing me in just about every way. Could somebody please explain to me the idea behind and uses of a domain? Oh, and also the skins, could somebody tell me about the skins a bit please? Thanks.

Which forum download/stuff are you exactly using, would really help us if we knew.

A domain is supposed to be a unique identifier of a resource on the internet. Each domain name points to an IP address of the server you host your site on that is connected to the internet.

Basically, a domain name is a simple-to-remember substitute for an IP address and it allows you to distinguish between a pointless site like www.purple.com and a more useful site like www.google.com.

But your post is very confusing. What problem are you having exactly?
 
Yeah sorry about it being so confusing, I was to be honest at a loss for words at exactly what I was asking.

I registered on Invisionfree.com.

And what I meant basically is, I don't understand what a domain does. Right now for instance, when I go to the site it doesn't show the forum, just the member list at the bottom, like here on SPPf. I made all of the forums and stuff via the Admin PC (which just in case you didn't know, allows me to edit the site) but when I go to the forum itself, none of it is showing up.

You haven't made it visible to members. go from Admin CP --> Manage Forums --> Settings

Then change it to be visible. tick the box.
 
huh? I got up to the part where you said Manage Forums, but where's the box that allows mambers to see it?

From there, look next to the sections. There should be a 'Settings' and 'Permissions' link. Click on 'Permissions.' Check off the boxes under 'Read' who you want to be able to see the section.
 
oh, okay thanks. I did that and now its working fine. Thanks. I do have another question though; for skins for the forums, what is the CCS and where do I fill that stuff in when I'm adding a skin to the forum?
