    Hello,

    I am creating a site with iWeb and I really need a forum to be added to the site.

    Can you tell me how to do this so that users have to register, log in with a password have their own user area, can upload their own icon etc, etc.

    ...and so it intergrates with my site.

    Thanks in advance!

    Sam

    I don't think it can be done in iWeb, look into something like phpBB or vBulletin.

    You won't be able to do that with iweb, if your looking for a message board like invisionboards or phpboards, count that out in regards to iweb, not supported, you might be able to get away with a small message board of some sorts by manipulating code with html snippets, but iweb isn't the best route to go if your looking to create a forum

    Check out SMF.

    It's free and easy to install, tweak, and use.

    okay, is there a way that i could make a forum elsewhere and put it in my site so it looks like it fits in?

    SMF will let you do that. Here is an example with it embedded on a page (not made with iWeb, btw).

    They have zillions (not that many, but you get the idea) of themes, so it's easy to make it look however you would like.
