Treasure Coast Designs & Web Hosting
If you are looking to create your own website here are the 3 things you need and in this order:

1. Domain Name - $10 to $20 (preferably with an ICANN accredited registrar)
2. Web Hosting - Between $50 and $1,000 annually. Generally $100-$200 for most people.
3. Web Design - Between $100 and $10,000 annually. Generally $300-$500 for most people.

Please make sure you have a domain name registered with an ICANN accredited domain name registrar. Network Solutions or GoDaddy are good choices. Avoid web hosting or web design companies that want to register your domain name for you. Many stories can be found online about good people losing their domain names because of 3rd-rate web hosts trying to pass themselves off as registrars. Take control of your own domain name from the start and go with a reputable registrar, you'll save yourself a lot of time and energy in the long run.

Here is a current list of ICANN accredited registrars.

Company Treasure Coast Designs will be moving in a new direction soon. That of strict commercial development. We will no longer be giving away free design templates, tutorials, or cms addons. Doing so in the past has only proved to be more time consuming to create and support. We will continue to provide the same excellent level of support for our many client sites powered by DragonflyCMS, PHP, and HTML.

Those in need of support for future theme upgrades will be dropped. We will no longer be supporting DragonflyCMS further than version 9.1.2. It's highly recommended that everyone find another theme designer for your DragonflyCMS needs if you plan to continue with the C.M.S. past 9.1.2.

For TCD clients with PHP and HTML powered sites this change of direction will not affect you.

Ive looked at the other options and I'm not happy with them. Unfortunately, the current community is lacking in ever so many ways. I looked at what another writer wrote about Joomla and I'm not happy with the gallery integration (partial) and difficult news administration. These are key areas that I want my members to be able to contribute to in a cms. Unfortunately, my favorite theme designers are going bye bye in DF and add on coders are so limited as to be non existent. I'm feeling very lost at the moment........

Mhm, I just commented, but try to describe what I meant behind this.
You were a pretty total noob, Devon, when you started to make your ugly themes, face it.
But then you got better and better and that took you to the point where you have balanced good visual taste and abilities to accomplish what you are thinking.

I can't understand why you removed your latest work, as I understand you had removed your older work.

I always like to learn from others, but now...

Anyway, good luck with your new ideas.

I believe this is a good move for you. I to have dropped all support for Dragonfly. I wont create anymore themes or port any. I have also removed all of the free themes and deleted the support section from the forums. Maybe if they move the cms into another direction or maybe get new people to help out, especially in the forums, then maybe just maybe I'll return to the CMS. But until they clean house and remove all the trash, I'm headed in another direction Cool

I've been wanting to move away from DF for a while, mostly due to the attitude of certain people in the community.

I had a need to create a new site for my step-son, who races "legend" oval track racing cars. I needed content, a gallery and an events calendar. I installed Joomla thinking I'd take this opportunity to make my first Joomla powered site as an exercise, and then hand over management of the site to my step-son, who's a whizz with cars but unlike a lot of youngsters these days knows little about computers.

Content is added to Joomla via the Admin section, and it's HUGELY complicated. The Gallery module was only integrated as far as display was concerned, content is added externally, and the Calendar was very difficult to customise.

After 3 days wrestling with Joomla here's the site I made for him:-

http://www.legend114.co.uk

Knocked up in DF in a couple of hours.

My quest to free myself from the most stupidly easy to install, set-up and manage CMS continues Wink

If you want a quick and easy to use cms, ide recommend Wordpress. It is not just for bloggers, its a very light weight and very easy to use cms, with tons of plug-ins (modules) for the user to impplement. Try it and im sure you'll agree Razz
