Creating a forum for my site?


#1

Hello there, I’d like a forum on my domain but I’m a bit confused.

Is there an app somewhere that is a forum from the start which DH can provide for me which I can play around with, with skins etc and change layouts and images in it? Or do I have to go out somewehre and find one and install it in a folder on my domain and just link it that way to a link on my site and redirect it?

Thanks for any help :slight_smile:

There’s a One-Click install for phpBB. You can install it in a Fully Hosted subdomain that you’ve created in the panel, or a subdirectory of an existing domain.

How do I create a fully hosted subdomain? I want it under www.ladaena.com either as www.ladaena.forum.com or www.ladaena.com/forum how do I make that happen?

The control panel for making this happen doesn’t want to agree with me and all I get are error messages that I do something wrong :frowning:

Could you tell me step by step how to do it and where to write what? Feels like a total n00b ><;;

Thank you! I finally figured this out :smiley:

Hmm… I’ve been looking around here though and… it doesn’t seem like there are any ready templates to download for your forum, is there? This place is so confusing >< You should make an index of FAQ things or something :smiley: (Or… maybe there is and I haven’t found it yet blush) could someone link me to that place if there is one? :slight_smile:
