I believe that there are Alternatives but Wordpress is most likely your best bet. Not to mention that it's more Professional.

And you know what. Stop making so many damn Websites. It's getting on my damn Nerves ever since you joined FP and continued to make Websites that all look the same over and over and over again. So again, learn a Programming-Language and come back afterwards or delete your Account and don't come back. This is not a Webmaster-Forum. ForumPromotion.net is. Not CodeForum.org
Hey man, obviously you are frustrated with Weboogle because yes, he has made many websites. And it's understandable that you are frustrated about this because they are all very similar. In this thread he's saying he released a local news station, but he released a free forum that is used for posting news. So yeah, the title of his thread here is pretty misleading. It's not a local news station. However, I think we shouldn't be so quick to criticize him. We have no idea how old Weboogle is, what their actual experience is, or what they are doing behind the scenes. Even if he doesn't know HTML and makes a lot of similar websites, I'm not entirely sure if it's appropriate to be hounding him to delete his account and leave. I also don't remember a rule saying you have to know a programming language to be here at CF.

All I'm saying is if Weboogle is breaking rules, I'm sure Malcolm will intervene, and if Weboogle wants to leave then that's on him, but it's not the best idea to criticize other members and tell them to delete their account. Even if I agree with a lot of your points, I think there's a better way to go about it than to respond in the way you did.

Here’s the link: News5.unaux.com
Weboogle, I checked out your page. I am a little confused.
You said it is a local news station, but you are covering several countries... Canada, India, France, Pakistan, USA, and more.
It is more of an international news site, not a local one.
Along with that, I don't know if this is really a news station. It seems to be more of a news forum where users can share links or videos in one section.
I have seen your other news forums & I think you should put them all together to make one forum. None of them seem to actually be news stations, but they all are pretty much the same - One (or maybe a few) section where you just post a bunch of threads with a link to an article or a video embed. I don't see any discussions going on, and a lot of times the news is not related to each other.

I think you should merge all of your sites into one forum so you can focus on one project. I think you need to be truthful in your thread titles & site names by making sure visitors know that you do not have any news stations, you have news forums. I think you should focus on making a unique theme for your site & getting members to your sites.

I hope this advice helps, but I am still curious about my questions before. I see you are using a forum software for this, so that answers one of my questions - What plugins or programming language(s) are you using to help transform your forum into a news station (live TV, RSS, blog, social media, etc) ?

I have made a ton of websites, following a design format. A lot of people can’t do what I do. Behind the scenes: I’m working on stuff that no one on this site knows about. SecretIO projects.

Nice, that's good to have a consistent style & secrecy is part of the game :)
I only publicize projects when I am ready to, and barely mention them unless I know I can show off Version 1(or whatever) soon.

We're here to help if you need anything though :)

What do you mean by that?

Nobody cares if you've made a ton of Websites. And may I ask what Design-Format has your Sites followed? And to be honest, I think a lot of us here can still do what you do. You seem to be over-exaggerating on that one there. I'm quite interested to see what these "SecretIO Projects" are.

Do any of you watch local news and how often? Just asking.
I watch local news occasionally, but I prefer to read my news online rather than listen to people talking about it.
I read most of my news from links at Reddit, Hacker News (news.ycombinator.com), and Bloomberg.

I don't really watch the News on TV. Right now, it's always about Brexit and the new PM and it's really boring hearing about it all.

I prefer to read the News online. I mainly read Technology-Related News. As of course, Tech is what I'm into. I mainly read/watch The Verge but I do occasionally read/watch other News-Sources.
