Hello folks,

I want to create a forum for my website but i dont no where to start from. I have gone through various posts and articles on internet, and i'm very confused because. Most people are saying write your code yourself which can help you to make changes as per demanding situations . Few people are saying, it's better to use themes| templates available on internet to create forums.
Could any of you please let me know, which way is better to create a forum for my website.
I would heartly appreciate that!
Thanks again!
