I have been playing about with drupal for quite some time now and in some ways have managed to get my head around a lot of it. But I still struggle with things and I find that support forums, for any type of web development, can be very cold towards amateurs. What I would really like is some proper help and I'm willing to pay. Are there experienced Drupal Developers who would be willing to offer help with my site, rather than actually develop it for me. For example. At the moment I am trying to integrate phpBB and it's driving me insane. I'm getting a database error and the database won't sync. Posting an issue on the module is pointless and just gets ignored. The usage stats for that module suggest nearly 1000 sites are using it. From googling around it seems like the regular advice is to use Drupal's built in forum. But I'd much rather use a feature rich solution like phpBB or Vb.
So is there anyone in the UK (I'm based in SE London/NW Kent) willing to offer their services? As I say, I'm willing to pay. I've been developing this site for over four months and I need to get it online.
