When I was learning to use Dreamweaver (a few years ago), I found that there was a very helpful Dreamweaver magazine available.

Some slight irony in the thread title. :lol:

Did you check YouTube videos?

question to those who run forums
do you ever find it tedious to keep having to monitor the forums as there are loads of dodge ads and we get 4-8 dodge signing up (suspect it's a bot) and adding ISPs (which change all the time) to the spamlist...

is there any way to efficiently run a free forum for young people (therefore profanity, adverts, pills etc are banned) esp in terms of time as it's non-profit.
