    I think the integration as things stand is pretty reasonable – the forums can be accessed by the same navigation tabs as the rest of the website. I was just replying to your suggestion about using SMF with a standard skin – it’s something I’d do on some websites but I think with SF it really has to all feel like one “experience” as it were.

    Firstly – Bully – where were you 8 years ago when we needed to know that stuff and got fed up of phoning parents every 5 minutes! 8 years and 3 kids later I reckon we could write a book ( How to not kill your children…..just!).

    Secondly – other sites I frequent have donation buttons and if they need a bit of money for something they ask very nicely. I’m sure a few people on here would part with a few quid? you only need 24 people giving a tenner each….. get the button up and i’ll chuck you some pennies.

    Thirdly – when I win the lottery I’ll give you the money…..now where did I put that ticket?

    We had to make a concerted effort to raise the funds, although it was a success. We only quoted for one years hosting but managed to raise enough to cover two years…..again, we have in excess of 2000 active members which certainly makes the difference. I absolutely recommend having a donate button with a little descriptive text stating why, moreso for the KB as that’s where you’re getting the hits. You could force folks to read your donation blurb by setting up a little script that re-directs to a donation page with the narrative and a donate button. For example, each time a member logs out of the Babywhisperer forum they are re-directed to the following page:

    http://donate.babywhisperer.com/

    the re-direct only happens when they physically log out from the forum and the script is actually an add-on package for the forum software…still, it’s an idea you could try out?

    There’s now a button up there on the right that takes you to Dunc’s Paypal account but just so you all know it’s not finished and the explanatory text also needs sorting out.
