dont create a forum yourself. even dani didnt make techtalk all by herself (although she did do a lot) - get an existing forum engine and customise

why not? It's not that difficult and you can learn quite a bit in the process.

i still prefer to create my own forums manually than using pre-made forums available.. by installing my forum manually, i can have full control over my forum.

If you create the forum manually with intentions of a large user base you must be very careful with your security.

Large forums are like fat wounded sheep, easy to manipulate.

So word to the wise - If you plan on creating a forum from scratch make sure you invest some time in learning about software security.

The most popular forum scripts are phpbb and vBulletin.
Phpbb is free while vBulletin costs about $160. There are several others. Just do a search on google.

Oh yeah! It's easy to make your own simple forum.

Here's the simple one I made (I didn't make any design to it, because then it's easier to just to copy the code from FTP into the place I'm gonna have the forum).

I used some codes from W3Schools.com except the frontpage, cause that's with pagination and I got that code from somewhere else. Just take a search at Google ;)

Yes I agree with aplha2006.... VBulletin is the Best for the forums...
But if you dont wanna spend $160 then phpBB is good and easy...
