Hi,

I'm on wordpress...im terrified but i want to do it anyway! Is adding a forum difficult and complicated? I

I've developed www.growchurch.net in last 3/4 days and really happy with progress so far, but the niche really suits a forum as its all about sharing ideas with one another. I created a FB Group today but really need a forum.

Many thanks for any help or suggestions in advance! :)

Hey Simon,

If your web hosting supports CPanel, you have what you need. Just go to Fantastico and look for options for bulletin boards. It's usually a couple of steps via a wizard and it's ready to go.

If you don't have cpanel access, you still can download and install it from a site like:

http://phpbb.com

But you will need the ability to create a database and a admin user for that database. If there is no provision (like hosting here at WA) you may need to put in a support ticket and ask how to go about getting a database created (if it's even allowed).

Best Regards,
Jim
