    I was wondering if a form will allow me to create a signup page and allow visitors to log-in to my website forums.:confused:


    Are there any tutorial pages someone would recommend for this type of coding?

    A form allows users to enter data, that's about it. Processing that data is where the magic happens, and can be a complicated thing if you don't know where to start.

    Generally people use PHP these days, and a database such as MySQL to store the account information. There are plenty of PHP login tutorials if you google it, though they are of varying levels of difficulty.

    If you have a forum already, I assume it's software you downloaded, most of those should be equipped with authentication already, I would think?
