     Add multiple Discussion Forums to your site with this code. Users can post messages to various forums and view the message list in a threaded format (the message comes first, then all the replies, in a tree-like structure)

It provides advanced forum features such as:

  • Multiple Forums
    You need not create separate tables when you decide to add more Forums to your site. Just add a new Forum in one place!
  • Threaded Message Display
    So you can keep track of the messages and replies. Each message forms part of a hierarchical tree.
  • Complete Information on every message
    The message display includes a list of all replies to the current message, plus a link to the original message (to which this is a reply)
  • Fully Customizable
    All the customizable aspects have been isolated into one file (CONFIG.INC), so you can modify the script without fear of breaking the code.
  • Cookies to store names
    The same user need not enter his name more than once; cookies do the trick automatically.
  • No hardcoded paths
    So you don't need to fumble when you are trying to run the script for the first time. All paths are relative to the current directory, and you can modify that by changing a Constant in ONE single place.
If you're learning ASP, you can go through the well-documented code to see how records are inserted, updated and retrieved from a database.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
