how to create forum using PHP code

Recommended Posts

This forum specifically says no Coding Help.

I moved it here from @phpfreaks as stated above, as (s)he is neither producing code or asking for it, but asking how to create them.

 

as with other similar questions like this though, if you have to ask the question then maybe it's not time to be looking at it. having said that, simple forums are not particularly hard to code (forget making the next SMF/phpBB/vBulletin for now though - those are pretty complex and feature packed). learn about membership/login scripts, then maybe simple database record retrieval. building a basic blog would be a good step as, in a way, they're nothing more than bog-standard, completely stripped down forums (in the respect of being a list of date-ordered posts belonging to a user). you can build out from there.

 

A couple of Google searches for "php blog tutorials" or whatever should churn out enough results to keep you busy learning for a while.

In all honesty, if you are interested start taking a look of the code of open source php form applications.

 

This is a great idea...I've always learned the most tearing into projects pepole have already done...

 

http://www.codango.com/ has a bunch of forum applications you could experiment with.  One of them may already do exactly what you want anyway.

 

Good luck though  ;)

Even simple forums can be tricky if you don't know what you are doing. Novices that try to look at PHPBB scripts are dumbfounded by how complex they are. Granted they are a bit, but most of the code in there is just simply comments.
