I have an idea for a forum, anyone have any idea of how easy it would be to set up. phpbb or whatever it is.

Any advice welcomed.

Very easy. Several hosts even have one click installs and set it up for you.

Customisation can be relatively easy, though it depends what you want to do.

Nothing too exciting - I already have a site hosted with 34sp.com - how would I know if I could set an automatic one up ?

Speed shouldn't be an issue unless the forum is heavily used.

There are a few free forums - though this one is the most popular / most customisation.

Just use the link from the above one and fill out the details and all will be installed.

what you should do is set up a forum with a load of great shopping deals, then give some of your member mod rights and watch them go on a power trip.

Yup as easy as that,

If you want the forum customised, gimme a pm. I'm happy to give you a hand (done a few phpbb customisations) & I won't charge you :-D

You can easily integrate them, phpbb runs on templates so can look exactly like a normal website :thumbsup:
