Hello everyone! Im just a newbie here, and i really need help from you guys. We have a project in our school right now... i want learn how to implement a simple "Post Messages and Announcements" using PHP and MySql in my site. Kind of like a miniforum where the user's posted messages can be saved, viewed, and searched...
do i really need to study and use PHPBB or can it be implemented by simply using PHP and MySql.

You dont need phpbb for this. Save the user's messages in a table.. You can have 2 tables.. users and messages. user_id -> foreign key for messages. Whenever the user saves a message, save it in messages table which references the user_id of that user. List all the messages of that user for viewing.. select message_details from messages where user_id='user-id-of-that-user'; To search for a message, you can use select message_details from messages where message_details like '%-search-string-%' && user_id='user-id'; Since its a school project, I dont think you need more than that!

Cheers,
Naveen
