    I have GoLive, and I'm looking into CGI scripts and HTML forms to build a forum, and all I can find relates to automatic e-mails. I think what I want is pretty simple, and I know you can get one hosted remotely in exchange for banner space, but I want to make one. So my question is how to have the information input on the forms automaticlly post to the site?

    Look into useing PHP. I built a UBB look-alike using PHP, backended by a MySQL database, and it was really easy to do. PHP is pretty easy to learn, and its MySQL interface is simple to use.

    Finn: that's probably a good idea. For future reference to all, I ended up at http://www.discusware.com/discus/download.html
    and that has fairly clear instructions for donloading their script.
