Hi, I just downloaded YAF and I can't figure it out. I'm a total Noob when it comes to programing.

my site is enfpforum.com

I would like to use YAF. I've never programed before. And was told dnn was easy, just download and modules and install. Not so easy.

Can I get a noob guide to this?

email that works best is sbalbom at gmail.com


Thank you!!!!!

Bellow were the instructions: I've attached questions.

(1) Upload the PA as Host

What is PA? How do I make it host?

(2) Edit the web.config file in your DotNetNuke directory to add the required definitions for YAF. Take a look at dnn.config to see the changes.

How do I edit? download, change in txt file then upload?

Add this to ConfigSections:

And add this right after ConfigSections:

(3) Copy the dnnyafnet.config file to the root of your DNN installation.

What is the root?

(4) Edit the dnnyafnet.config file and change the "connstr" settings to the correct values for your database.

What is the connstr settings and what is the correct values for my database?

** NOTE: When adding the forum to a tab for the first time, YetAnotherForum.NET will automatically setup the database.

Just go to www.websitepalace.com and get a hosting account there its 10 bucks a month.

And then you can install it from there value application list and all the hard work is done for you.

Then you just configue your forum.
