If you can run an Access Database, I have code. You'll have to tweak it though, this is not a plug-and-play package. I basically figured out how to do a cgi style BB in ASP and give a stripped-down version of it and an article. It's at 4 Guys From Rolla. (my big claim to fame, I still get letters about this one and some guy just commissioned me to add a search feature Laughing )

I don't have a place to put it, but if you can find a database for it(I think it requires a MySQL database) you can use this. The trial version is free and never expires. Although, if you can ever pay for it, it sounds worth it. It sounds as good as burning board.(the boards that Paradigm-City uses)

Now, let me state this....I have never used InvisionBoard before. I haven't found a place to set one up.

Umm...what do you guys mean by 'database' ^^;;
Zola 10-10-2003 09:44 PM
Oh, dear....

a database is a collection of information.

Databases contain one or more tables. Each table contains fields and rows.

______First Name___Last Name__Gender__ Occupation
Row 1_Roger______Smith________M______Negotiator
Row 2_Norman_____Burg________M______Butler
Row 3_Dorothy_____Wayneright___F______Observer of Humans Wink


the rows are also called recordsets, a set of records.

The fields are the categories

First Name, Last Name, Gender, Occupation.


With me so far?
