    I am not a techie at all but I'm also not dumb. I use Dreaweaver MX to edit my web site. Do I have to learn code in order to add a simple forum to my web site? We do not have a full-time tech guy here so I would like to get started without him. He talks over my head anyway. What forum program works best with Dreamweaver MX? I downloaded phpbb in order to play around with it and I can't even get started. We have our own web server in-house and an Access database. As for what else, I will have to find out next week when our tech guy is back. I hate having to rely on someone else because then I am 100% dependent. I'd like to know something going into it. Any advice on this?

    If you are going to use phpBB, I would suggest you use MySql for the database.

    If you want to use an Access database and your webserver is IIS, I would suggest using the Snitz forum. http://forum.snitz.com/

    DreamWeaver is not going to help you with any of this.
