    www.phpbb.com

    you really shouldn't attempt to build a forum unless you know what you're doing.

    Do you actually want to make a forum from scratch or get a pre-made one ?

    www.webmonkey.com have a tutorial to do it in coldfusion and php but I would imagine they are very limited

    Hello. Take a look at Invison Board at: www.invisionboard.com which is very easy to use, moderate and install.

    I second Add's recommendation of phpBB. I use it for one of my sites and it was very easy to set up. And best of all, it's FREE!

    Here's a great link right here on siteopoint giving you many many choices, quite a few of them completely free.

    http://www.sitepointforums.com/showt...threadid=59251

    Try the free ones out. You might find one that does the job for you.

    If not, some very nice commericial solutions are listed also.

    i agree, i have just started to use this and its great, i dont have any members yet so if anyone wants to join feel free. Its a great little forum, that can be customized although i havent got that far yet. You can see it here just installed and ready to go. P.s its a F1 and Rallying Forum

    I agree, Invision is your best bet! I have just finished seting mine up, and it's VERY easy, cause if I managed to set it up, anyone else can, cause I am not very gifted....
    And hotnuts21, their forums are very easy to costumize as well, I got really pissed off with the Invision logo, cause I couldn't remove them, so i've posted on their support forum and it's really good! They really support you there!
