Ok I realize with experience this project will take some time and I,m learning a different system,. I do maintain a few phpBB forums. I do not expect a complete solution, rather some hints and nudges in the right direction.
The ultimate goal is a karaoke singers social network where they can register by group (state) and showcase their venue and singers in that venue. They need the option of photo galleries and gradually the Google friend finder will help them find singers that they have lost track of.
Dj's and KJ's will have the feature to input events (IE upcoming events) or gig schedules.
It is a new install ver 1.03 and so far I have installed the socialvantage template.
