Can anyone give me some simple advice in regards to adding a message board to my website site, do you know of any freeware software or any way of developing a message board.

Adding messaging board

by nikki96 In reply to Adding messaging board

It depends on what your host allows. Some hosts (most free ones, for example) don't allow the necessary things for message boards - databases and custom scripts.
http://www.bravenet.com has a lot of real nice free tools, including a very customizable message board. Also, http://www.ezboard.com is a nice site. Still free, may be charging a small fee in the future. You have to put up with ads for the free stuff, but if your web host doesn't have a message board already (many do - ask) and they don't allow custom scripts and databases (which won't be free anyway), you may want to check into it.
There are a ton of message board scripts out there. Find out what your host allows, what OS they use (NT/Unix) and what languages they support before trying any of the stuff you find.

See below links (remove spaces) for a ton of matches.
