You actually don't write a forum in Dreamweaver.
It has to be created in ASP, PHP, Cold Fusion or some other progrmming language.

The board (forum) we have here is a commercial product called Invision Board.
There are numerous forum software packages around some free, others commercial that you can get for your website.

First you need to know what your ISP hosting company supports. Most hosts are running a Linux type server which supports PHP. Hosts running windows servers support ASP.

For PHP a good board for starting out is called PHPBB.
Go to http://www.phpbb.com/index.php ('http://www.phpbb.com/index.php') and check it out.
It is the board I use on one of my sites...
