I have had the worst luck with designers/programmers lately - not sure what the deal is. I just can't seem to find someone reliable to actually do the job and roughly in the time frame they have given..
Enough of all that!
I purchased this forum and it was running off of phpbb. I had someone do a skin/style for it and he did a great job of creating it. NOW - he was suppose to install it and backup and restore the database to my server along with a few other things but I could never get ahold of him. I found out that my db was too large for a restore and found a program to help disect it and restore it for me.
I have now purchased vbulletin and have the database and everything converted over. My issue is getting my style/skin converted. I like the work he did and would like to be able to use it but I need somone that can put this work to a vbulletin frame.
