    building a discussion forum using ASP

    I found a free aspforum2.1 downloadable forum at http://www.aspforums.com/ASPForums/. I downloaded the files and now want to set up the forum. The configuration directions and installations directions are outlined but I still can't figure exactly what I am suppose to do to set up the forum. I am using Homesite a web creation program, what I did was to open the files in my homesite program. figured I need to put code between the tags given, example for the admin file where it clearly says title ...but I am not too clear as to how exactly to take the the downloadable files and make them into a forum.

    Point me in the right direction. take a look at the files.

    Setup:
    1. Extract the files to some folder
    2. Create a new site or virtual directory in IIS Mgr (with local path = the folder in step 1)
    Finished!

    Config:
    In <yourlocalpath>\discussionengine\configobj.asp you can find, as an example, on line 37:
    this.ADMINSETTING_ForumName = "Discussion Forum";
    Change this, and all other parameters, to the values you want


    I don't like this forum (no, not SP, ASP Forums!)
    Snitz Forums is so much better
