How do I install a forum like PHPBB or BBpress, etc. on my site? Anyone have any suggestions for forums I should use? Please post them. Also, if you can, post how to install the forums.

P.S. I found that the best forums are not the embeddable ones.

Thank you for your message. When looking into BBpress and PHPBB, it appears that they need to be added via PHP. At this time, scripting languages such as ASP and PHP cannot be added to your website through the Sitebuilder. The reason for this is that both these languages work by delivering and action upon files which actually remain offsite and stays located on the host server. Given the broad spectrum and possibilities of actions that these languages are capable of, then combined with the fact that constant input into the Yola hosting servers would be required- there is a degree of damage that could be done and it poses a security and stability threat to the websites of Yola users. Unfortunately, not everyone has the best intentions when creating a website..

I'm sorry I don't have better news for you.

Please have a peek at this Forum Tutorial we have created.

Kind Regards,
