Hello,

I am trying to build a website in DW and really want to include a message board on the front page and maybe the facility to upload images as well. Is this possible? I haven't bought the hosting space yet as i wasn't sure if i needed a specific hosting to do this. My knowledge is quitee limited so if someone could give me a simple explanation I'd be really grateful

Thank you

you need a scripting language

Php, asp, jsp, .net, coldfusion (pick one, learn it like you speak it)

then you need a database

mysql (recomended)

+++++++++++++++++++++++

i sugest PHP, Mysql (FREE FREE FREE cant get cheaper)

www.php.net

www.mysql.com

+++++++++++++++++++++++

now find a host that supports the langauge and the database

these are the weapons youll need for the battle (and it can get quite bloody!)
