Too bad...

 

I'm stuck at understanding how to modify the example to regular forums. I know I should drop the 'words' table, but where do I go from there? Do I just change the drop-down menu of the languages to a list of forums' names and then modify the code? It seems quite complex.

Well, it depends on what type of forum you want to create and also what you want the interface to look like.

 

In general though, I would think that you'd have a table for the boards, a table of threads, a table of messages, and a table of users.

From there, you'd likely need some sort of intermediary table that keeps track of the board, thread, message number and user for each message that's posted.

 

That all make sense?
