    Forum Development

    I am going to add a forum to my website. Are their any programs that could help me start this? Im not at all interested in learning internet codings and languages, but I am wondering how to make posting news on my page a lot easier than going back to Frontpage and adding the content. I am quite new to the internet world and was wondering if anybody could give me tips on how to start my own forum. Thanks.

    PHPBB is pretty good for starters, easy to maintain. easy to set up, you could run into a little trouble if you don't know any php, however, it should run fine all-in-all Nothing you can't get started with, there are step-by-step intructions to pull it off.
    You can make it blend very well with your website, it isn't too difficult to configure to meet your design standards. Very versatile. Although the basics of it are fine, if you want to install specific modifications to it in the future you might require some help from people


    And if it's just posting news that you require, I suggest looking for some type of blog, or a script such as cutenews for starters. Makes news posting easy and dynamic

    PHPBB is free Simple too, like I said, even to use PHPNuke, you would need a certain knowledge about PHP to begin with, unless you want to have tons of debugging hours... :S
