    I myself don't have experience but that should be a good idea. I like the website menforwomen, though it may not be the greatest example, it is still very interesting. You should do some research and how to do tutorials which are surely available. Sorry for not helping you much. Thanks smile

    I have used phpbb forum templates. They are decent and not hard to use.  A Google search for that should help you out.

    I am sure you can find information on how to start a forum website from the Google search engine.  However, the most important facet in my opinion of beginning an online forum is to safeguard against trolling or personal attacks against participating members.  As a general  rule, because basically I do not enjoy stressful situations; I do not mingle not even on the Hubpage website that seems nice enough.  I experienced an unpleasant online experience on the forum and decided to keep stay with  my purpose of writing which is to stay on topics of interest and forego controversies.

    I have. If you are going to make a forum try using My BB. It is very easy to use compared to various others, and has just been updated. To register a domain try xhostfire.com they are cheap around £45 for 9months last time I purchased. You can implement things such as cloudshare to help with protection from hackers,DDossing etc. To register for a website as well as a forum register the domain of your choice and contact xhostfire or search on google for a company that you can speak to and work out a deal with them.

    A word of warning this sort of work takes up A LOT! of time and usually are hard to get going if you are new. You can always send me a message on here or email me at Adamowen-@hotmail.co.uk if you need any more help sir.

    Despite the decline in popularity, message forums are still a great way to network and share information online. Getting started requires you to choose your host, plan your layout, customize the look, and advertise your forum. read more
