    Forum Advice

    tommysauce Level 1
      Hello people,
      I have an Arsenal football site (soccer to you American's/Australians out there!!) http://www.allgoonerdup.com and I want to add a forum onto the site. I have had a look to see what is available, but what software do any of you guys suggest is a good simple / easily managed bit of kit to do this. Many thanks in advance.

          Depends on what scripting language you've used to build your site. We've had
          success with Snitz (.asp).

            netcraft.com says that site is on an Apache server.

            quickest/easiest is if your hosting package allows using php, go to
            http://www.phpbb.com/
            download and install that forum package into a subfolder of the site.

            or- if your hosting has a control panel or CPanel, there is probably a
            one-click install button to set that forum up and create the database..

            whichever way, follow the full instructions of the readme/install documents
            for the phpbb package.
