How is it possible to create a message board

Hello, I am the creater of a web page just starting to take its first baby steps onto the internet. It is an almost pointless site at the moment and its only real point is that making it has turned into my hobby. If you would like to waste your time by going there click here

I would love to have a basic message board and/or chat room (nowhere near as advanced as this one). Does anyone know where I can find codes to put on my site to allow me to do this?

Hello its Webmaster Matt again, I messed up the url… its acually www23.brinkster.com/mattswebpage , and if you would prefer to email me any codes my new address is zman642@hotmail.com thank you!

Re: How is it possible to create a message board

Actualyl sadly Webmaster MAtt it is no longer possible to make message
boards. The U.S. federal sees it as dangerous in light of the war on terror
that people communicate extensively with each other. They are limiting
speech to greetings and salutations. Ok not really…

You have some options. The best option for you would be to get a thrid party
message board. I think bravenet has some. A simple search of google should
lead any number of results. looked for hosted message boards or something to
that effect. The other option would be to use scripting, but unless you have
“CGI” script access that’s not an option.

Hope this is a start

If you want a free option, use phpBB. http://www.phpbb.com

Quite an overkill for most simple sites, but you can configure it to be very
simple.
