    Login/Password

    I'm really new to all of this so be gentle. I want to start a sports forum that will allow ANYONE to view the posts but only registered members to post. I want members to have a Login with an associated password. I have made a forum on my current website using Frontpage and a java scrit but all it does is allow a list of usable password. There are no associated Logins, if you know a password you can get in. I want each password to work only in conjunction with its specific login. I also want the Login to appear next to the subject line when they are looking at the threads.

    Download an existing forum script and/or learn a server-side language. You can't do this in javascript and HTML.

    I suggest the PHP forum, php.net, and Kev's book to learn, but of course you could choose another language if you are so inclined, but PHP may be a little easier to pick up.

    Even if you want to learn PHP, I still wouldn't go to the trouble of building your own web forum, there is just too much work involved. I would use one that has been built and tested. Check out invision board for a great forum script. It works well, is nice looking, customizable, and it's free!

    If you want to learn something . . . start doing it!

    I suggest phpBB. Free and easy to install.
