Default Password Protected Forums

Hi all,

im in need of some immediate help. me and a friend have to make a website for our school chaplain and need to include a password protected forum. unfortunately, neither of use know how to do it and we cant find anyone who does. we have a good knowledge of HTML and some basic JavaScript. any help would be great, it would be even better if someone would help write the code for us.

Thank you.:D

You could try the Snitz forum software. You would need to know a lot about ASP, otherwise, you'd be messing everything up. I don't think you can develop a forum without knowing PHP or ASP.

I think what you mean is, you don't think you can develop a forum without knowing a server language. There are other server languages, such as Perl and ColdFusion.

As for pre-written forums, Snitz is a very good one if your server supports ASP, otherwise I would look into phpBB or vBulletin for PHP solutions.

Thank you very much for the help, but is there a program that is a WYSIWYG forum builder? I need to have many different accounts and passwords for seperate people, and dont have the time to try and learn a new code language.

Hi there,

No, I don't think there is such a thing as a WYSIWYG forum builder.

However, why don't you download a copy of the Snitz forum that this site using? It offers stuff like user sign up, so there is nothing to build. Then you could use WYSIWYG features of Dreamweaver to change the appearance of the site.

What are your special requirements that you don't find in ready-made products? Is there a reason you want to build a whole new system? I think this is going to be impossible without some knowledge about a server side programming language, as has been indicated by others in this thread.
