Well I've gone and written a forum for my sons website, VERY BASIC but it works and I'm well chuffed! The site will probably only be used by my son and his mates but I want to improve it if I can. The part I want to work on first is the post listing - for instance on this forum when you view a thread you see all the related posts and they are grouped as to which post they relate to (not very clear! I'll try again) my post list just lists each post related to the first post. I'm not after pages of precise code but the theory of the logical structure - I like to work a bit out for myself! Is this do-able for a beginner/intermediate programmer? Any help or links appreciated.
