Forum-board.





Shadowfist
Hey, guys:)

I want to make a forum-board ala the Teen Hungama-site for my gaming-guild.
Can I do that with the software provided by Frihost, or do I need some other?

Thanks,

SF

You can use phpbb forum. It's freeware.
Go to this page: http://www.phpbb.com/downloads.php and download the full version.
Decompress and upload it into the directory public_html (make a new direcory /forum)
Then use the wizard setup.

I think you can't auto install from Direct Admin control panel (I don't found anything)

But to get a forum wich looks like the Teen Hungama site, you have to change the layout (maybe the layout already excist, or you have to change it yourself), and maybe even install mods (modifications). These you can find at http://phpbb.com/ and http://phpbbhacks.com/ , and at many other websites (only it's possible they have bugs).

smf is far better than PHPBB

I would reccommend phpbb. This is what this forum is on. It is a really good forum program. If you are using frihost cpanel then you can just install it from fantastico. If you are using direct admin then I really can't tell you how to install it. But you if you use it I would reccommed adding extra MODS to it. If you go to www.phpbb.com you'll find lots of MODS and sytles to add to it.

I definetly recommend using Phpbb. I use it on my site and I greatly enjoy it. The tool is very versatile albeit it could be difficult to use for a newcomer. You can always host the forum on a page such as forum-host.com where they will set up the page for you, however I recommend that you try and create it yourself.

I personally dont see why peoepl would pick PHPBB ova SMF, SMF is very similar to IPB, and its free! they even offer a file that converts the MYSQL data to SMF so that you lose nothin!

If you like a forum such as the Teen Hungama site, I recommend you phpBB (2.18 ), because the T.H. site is powered by phpBB too, and uses the style Morpheus, wich you can download.

i like phpbb too
but if you really want it easy, you can just get an invisionfree board.
that does practically everything you want it to also.

What do you mean by invisionfree? IPB? That isn't free anymore. You have to pay for it.

There are several solutions for that. One is phpbb if you code php. Or you can use free services, so the forum is created beforehand and you just chose a template. Here is one of this option: http://aimoo.com
This is quite good service. I'm also having account at them.

Take a look also at http://www.punbb.org/.
It's like phpbb, but it's faster. The same features in less space.
