View Full Version : simple forum?

Aug 4th, 2002, 09:35 PM

When it comes down to building sites, I must say I'm a rookie, as I'm developing one now and learning on the way.
Does anyone know how I can make a simple forum for my visitors to post messages and replies?
If possible, I have to be able to delete them and the page should refresh every once in a while.

www.phpbb.com www.ikonboard.com

It all depends on what your host will allow you to use.

Do you have your own CGI-BIN? Do they have PHP and/or MySQL installed?

My fav resource for scripts is http://www.hotscripts.com

Also, see if your host has any scripts pre-installed.

If you can't install your own scripts, try a remotely hosted one and just link to it.
