I am creating my first fully functional website as my goal for 2018. The website's functionality will allow people to log in, and interact with parts of the site that I build.
For example people will be able to click that they were at a show and it will show up on their profile. They will be able to upload audio recordings.
What I'm trying to say is there is functionality that requires a username.
I want to create forums that tie into the usernames I create (I'll normalize the database and create the username).
With vbulletinboard can I alter it so that registered users that I hand code can log into the vbulletinboard code? Is this hard to do? What are the pros and cons of using vbulletinboard vs. doing it yourself?
