How can I add a Forum or a Discussion Board like vBulletin or PhpBB to RapidWeaver?


What you would have to do is take a Forum like
PhpBB’s which is great and I’ve been using for a long time

Chapter 1: Using third party services
Chapter 2: On PHP enabled servers



Chapter 1: Using third party services


If you don't want to upload and install a forum to your own server or your server doesn't fit the requirements then you can open one for free on a free forumhost like the following ones:
http://www.forumfree.com
http://www.freeforums.org
Or any other you find searching
on google.

Then link it from your website or embed it using an
iFrame.

However these services are mostly full of advertising, unreliable and little customizable.

I would really recommend you to install the Forum on your own server. It’s much more reliable and much more customizable. If you don’t have a hosting yet or your hosting doesn’t fit the minimum requirements have a look at the
Publishing and Hosting FAQ.

Chapter 2: On PHP enabled servers


If you don’t have a hosting yet or your hosting doesn’t fit the minimum requirements have a look at the
Publishing and Hosting FAQ.

You can read all you need to know about the installation process of PhpBB and how to customize your Forum at my other website PhpBBFAQ.org

Once you installed your Forum I would recommend you to add a page to your RapidWeaver for it. Then either link to it, use an iFrame to embed the Forum into the page or make a Redirect to it.

Installation of the PhpBB Forum is really easy.

Note: If you want to install a PhpBB Forum on
HostExcellence read here.
