Resources

The scripts listed here are ones that I use or have used before in the creation of websites. As such, I will provide full support for any hostees using them. Most of these scripts are available for pre-installation via the application form.

Fanlisting resources
Enthusiast
by Angela
Enthusiast is a powerful script that allows for the management of an entire fanlisting collective. From the admin panel, the webmaster can easily manage not only all of their owned fanlistings, but also any they may have joined. The setup also allows for a main collective page with links to each fanlisting owned and joined. While support seems to have mainly been discontinued at this time, it is still the most popular fanlisting management script used by the community at this time.

TCG resources
EasyTCG
by Bloo
An easy-to-learn script that makes trade post management extremely simple. eTCG is very flexible, and its setup means that very little coding work has to be done on the frontend of the trading post. There are also a number of mods available to further enhance some of its features. By default, pre-installations of eTCG will include the "Show Mastered Cards" mod. If you require others, feel free to request them in the comments section of the application form!

MyTCG
by Amanda
A script designed to allow its user to run their own online TCG. Currently the most popular script used within the community, although its age lends itself to some frustrating bugs. Thankfully, the folks over at Helping Hand have released a few useful hacks, and the community at Exposure Forums has ironed out solutions to other issues. Mods may be requested by way of the application form comments section!

Forums
MyBB
by MyBB Group
A relatively simple, easy to use forum system. Not as customizable as some of the alternatives in terms of themes and mods, but significantly easier to navigate and administrate. An excellent BB choice for those who are new to forum management or those who don't require the bells and whistles offered by other management systems.

phpBB
by phpBB Limited
A highly customizable forum management system that has been around for more than 15 years, phpBB has a wide variety of useful features for its users. However, it's difficult to learn in comparison to MyBB. phpBB is the best option for those with a lot of experience, or those who need a more complicated setup and are willing to take the time to learn.

A very simple flat file news management script, allowing for multiple users and user commenting. Fantastic for website updates.

SiteSkin
by Angela
A quick-to-learn and easy-to-use short script that allows users to set up multiple layouts for their websites, which can be selected between at the click of a button. Fun for users who (like me) have trouble deciding between different looks, or want to add some variety to their page.

WordPress
by Automattic
Designed primarily as a blogging tool, WordPress can also be used now as a base from which to create fully-functioning websites - and you don't even need a lot of coding knowledge. Additionally, a massive variety of plugins allows the user to fully customize their experience - and their viewers'. Pre-installations of WordPress come with the "Akismet" and "Jetpack" plugins installed, as well as a few of the more popular pre-made site themes.
