Create a basic forum. Is it possible?

  LAP 11:10 02 Mar 08

My wife would like to have a forum on her web site. She is not expecting heavy usage as it would be between a few friends talking about their pets etc. (i know she cannot restrict its use)

I know nothing about creating a web site. I have researched the web and it looks a bit complicated to me. Is there such a thing as a BASIC forum and can you create it yourself? Thank you.

Well, that depends what you call complex. Building a custom CMS from scratch can be complex! Running on off-the-shelf forum such as phpBB and tacking it onto another website is very easy.

Thanks, Kemistri & CodeMeister lots to look and think about. I will tick as resolved for now. If I cannot produce a forum from your suggestions then I never will. Cheers.
