What's the best way to create a forum in Dreamweaver? It wouldn't have to be as advanced as this site, but what's the best way to go about it?

I have a client who wants to include a simple forum or "message board" as she calls it. I've never done one and was just looking for a place to start.

Any help, advice, or resources would be appreciated.

your best bet is probably a 3rd party freeware/open source tool like phpbb - writing a generic forum is sorta re-inventing the wheel at this stage of the net, unfortunately...

but i would also sorta caution against a forum for a small site unless you really think the traffic is there to support it - otherwise, you end up with a site that has a dead forum (not a good visual impression for new visitors) or you have to spend a bunch of time monitoring it and making sure random people don't post in appropriate messages... :-/

hope that helps!
