i belive there is a wizard. Its called a discussion board in frontpage. Word of warning though, no proper forums are made in Frontpage and you cannot host a frontpage page on a cheap (linux) webserver


I would go with phpbb (http://phpbb.com) forums. They are free and there is a large community that can help you with customization to your liking.

If you want to go with a higher end forum program, you can buy a license for vbulletin (http://www.vbulletin.com/) which is what daniweb is running.


yeah, i agree.. i recommend phpbb forums. you can find lots of support websites and forums that can help you throughout the process


Ive used both simplemachines and PhpBB. If you just want a server for development / playing about then download XAMPP from ApacheFriends. DO NOT USE IN A PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENT. With this software you can get php/apache/mysql as well as a nice web interface to mange mysql databases up and running in a matter of minutes, and phpbb/simplemachines runs prettymuch out of the box on it.
