    [Tutorial] How to Practice Making Forums

    Have you ever wanted a forum of your own but just didn't have the money to pay for a domain or a host? Well your dreams can come true. Although the forum you will make won't be as opulent in features it will still be a good experience and a good place to test your skills. I learned many forum features from making many of these simple forums for people in which some of them actually became popular and got a real domain.

    Firstly, pick your free-forum site:

    -SuddenLaunch
    -InvisionFree
    -Forumer
    -IWannaForum

    Second, register and choose your access URL. I.E. MoiForum.suddenlaunch3.com if you used SuddenLaunch.

    Third, activate your forums by checking your e-mail validation. [ May not be required on all forums. ]



    Fourth: Customize your forums and play around, usually there's a Moderator Control Panel and an Administrator Control Panel. As the maker of the forum you're automatically an administrator, also called "Root" because you're the "root" of the forum, and can access both the control panels.

    Fifth: Have fun and gather people.

    Hope this helps.

    Greetz,

    Or... Just PM me and I can set you up with a website o:
    If I critique your image, and you dont understand, or want help, or just think I'm a douche, talk to me on MSN. ([email protected]). I may be harsh, but I am always willing to help if I am free.

    Well the point of this is to let people learn, instead of having people doing things for them. True winners are self-taught.

    You don't learn anything from using a forum that sets itself up. Writing in the desired name of the forum you want and then letting the script from the website do everything for you will not teach you anything...
