Hi,
I'm having a website built with dreamweaver which includes a members area (have to register to get access), with resources on 'Dyslexia'. I want to included a members forum in this area, i.e. can't view or post to the forum unless you have logged in. Does any one know of a plugin forum for this use or the best way to get one built? My web builders don't do forums. I Appreciate your help as I am new to this.
Thanks Andrew

there are lots , if your hosting has a software section (fantastico soft alicious) there will be some self installing ones in there i would think there are self instaling ones

Thanks for that (nice Villas in Bali).
My host has fantastico deluxe but it does not have a forum. It does have quickinstall though and I found the following forums under it;
phpBB
Simple Machines Forum
bbPress
PunBB
Does anyone have any experience with these or know anything about them?
Thanks Andrew

Out of those I like Simple Machines Forum. Just a personal preference though.
