    No. When someone comments on an article at SitePoint.com it creates a thread in the appropriate forum.

    1. Got to have plenty of imagination to sort out the 5 steps.
    2. Would be great to go beyond those obvious basics and tell the readers how to integrate it into the design of the rest of the site. It's pretty cool to have phpBB2 integrated into the main navigation of the site, and lets say, a right or left column of the site.

    The article seemed fine. I think details are very good.

    The one thing I would change though is the title. I thought I was going to program a phpBB like forum. Should be "Install phpBB in 5 Steps" or something like that.

    I didn't, you couldn't do that in 5 steps, maybe 500 if you were tricky

    Doesn't this article just regurgitate the phpBB manual/install guide?

    What if you have a site that also is going to include a phpBB forum. also, you want the user to be logged in to take part in the forum as well as other pages outside of the forum.

    How can you use the username/password information generated by phpBB on other parts of your website like a "comments" page?

    If you do a search on the forums this has been discussed many many times over. I think there might also be a hack over at phpBBHacks for this

    I have searched all over phpBBHacks as well as Sitepoint for this hack but I am having NO luck. Can someone point me in the right direction if I want the user to be logged in to take part in the forum as well as other pages outside of the forum.

    Thanks

    I still cant do it. I am stuck at ..domain/phpBB2/install/install.php

    where i am asked to enter database name etc..
    I know no database so i cant see the problem myself.
    I am asked admin username and password. I dont know what they should be. Am I supposed to create one?
    Or should I enter host username and pw. In any case I
    get an error. Best error I get is "passwords don't match".

    first you should check with your provider whether your domain subscription offers mysql access at all.
    If so, your provider will give you all access data, i.e. database name, user name and password.

    The title of this is kind of misleading. Its not teaching how to "build" a phpBB forum but rather how to install it. Nowadays people can install it in 1 simple step through Fantastico.
