I want to put a discussion forum on my website to get more visits. How do I do this? I need it explained in clear simple to follow instructions as I am not a technie.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

A lot of our customers use phpBB, including myself. It's pretty easy to set up and use.

Have a look at the following to start off

I have just discovered this info on Free-Online and working my way through it so I can put a discussion forum on my site without calling in an expert.

Platty - thanks - I just want a simple forum and looking at the technical jargon it seems like it will take me weeks - is this correct?

Sandra,

It depends on what your after and what sort of webspace you have, if you have PHP/CGI and mysql up and running ( you may get this with your free-online account depending on which one you picked) phpbb is a very simple Forum to install, I installed this one to show you in under 10 minutes.

step 1 Upload
step 2 goto install page in web browser
step 3 input information your asked for i.e. username and password
step 4 use forum

it really is that easy, obviuosly a bit more detalied than that but easy.

as Dave said lots of people use it, it's the first one I used and beleive me I didn't have a clue what i was doing and I set it up in no time.

If you have any problems just reply on here or mail me using the link below

The tutorial, Dave mentioned earlier is easy to follow, and it's what I used to get my forum up and running on my Plus Net account.
