Default My Tutorial Site

Hey everyone.. New to this site. I'll probably be using this quite often.

I'm looking for people to help me with my website. It is a tutorial hosting site... but it only hosts original tutorials. these tutorials are mainly on design but branch out to programming, website building, operating systems, networking modding etc.

I need people to moderate the forums, help with tutorials, help with the layout, get traffic, manage it etc. I just really want a community of people like this but obviously it will have a slight topic difference.

Any ideas or anyone interested in being apart of it?

I would also like to find some people to start programming with. It doesn't really matter to me what it is.. application, game or whatever. I want to learn more about the programming field.

Anyone interested in this?

My site URL is http://theguruhouse.com

Thanks everyone!

So you want to put up only ORIGINAL tutorials... Yet you use Joomla to make/manage your site... Kind of contradictive don't ya think?

Not at all...
What does Joomla! have to do with content? Or the tutorials? Nothing!

Lmao... If you want originality, why not do originality... Though yes anyone can build a site with a CMS, and yes anyone can type out a tutorial... But honestly, coming from doing something similar to what your doing, if I was going to ask for only original content, then I would have the website just as original... Just as it is... I built my entire cms, by my hands, my entire site was done by my hands... And though what is up as of right now, may not look that great, at least I did it, at least it really is original...
To be honest with ya, when I first looked at your site, I was thinking that I would help you with some content, then I looked a bit deeper, and saw that you didn't actually design it, then I figured screw it, if I am going to put my originality online, I want it to me online with originality... Just as it will be...

Burn420 I have had enough of your beating every body up because they didn't code their site from scratch. You are a dyed in the wool jerk when it comes to that.
Not every one knows how to code from scratch. Most assuredly that includes you. Your web page if you can call it that is a POS.
So clean up your own yard before you go criticizing your neibours...

And mods ya'll can ban me if you like. But how long are you going to let this fool get away with this?

Absolute agreement here. Why should he spend the time building a custom cms when there are highly engineered open source ones out there already. It's a complete false economy. Plus if i was taking advice on content management system building and design you'd be the last guy i asked, and before you pop back up to tell us all it's a working progress i wonder what gives you the high ground here? The OP'er is most likely not a guy wanting to learn code and database structure but instead he wants to offer some of his spare time up to contribute to the IT community. Contributing helpful work is a concept you should probably look into burn. Whilst you're at it "i-can-learn-a-language-in-10-days man" why not looking into a code of respect for other people. P***k.

Yours sincerely
Tom Knox

Yet again.. What does a CMS have to do with providing people with tutorials and useful information.

No.. NOT anyone can type out a tutorial. You have to actually know what your talking about. So another "fail" on your part.

ONCE AGAIN. The content of my site has nothing to do with the layout. I have also built sites from scratch. I DO know HTML and PHP.

You're right. It doesn't look that great. In fact, It hurts my eyes and is very unorganized.

You should look into using an open source CMS. (They are free and available to anyone. You can even edit the code! XD XD XD XD) But seriously, the people who made these CMSs are very generous and did a very good job. There is no reason that they should be bashed (same for the users) for creating/using them.
