I need some suggestions and the brains of PHP enthusiasts! I'm planning to implement a forum from scratch but I'm having a hard time figuring out what it needs for the database structure. I'll like to have the admin authorize the message before it is actually displayed on the user pages.
I have come up with a few columns that may be required such as:
But from this point on, I'm stuck. How do you handle the thread part? What other fields do I need to include? If there are some forums in php using mysql, please let me know. So far I've seen some and I don't know how the table structure is setup to handle a forum.
Thanks in advance.
