Larry Ullman's Book Forums

Recommended Posts

I want to integrate the forum example in the book into my website, except I would modify it so that I could have multiple forums with different topics on my site. 

What I want to know is what columns and tables do you think I should add to my forum database. 

To add to the example in the book, I thought of creating a new forums table, and in it having the forum_id column, as well as the thread_id foreign key column. I am new at this so if you have any suggestions at populating my forums table that would be great.

I want to have a forum that has several topics, I want each forum topic to have a forum id. So they are like separate forums. Here are the columns I though up for my new forums table which will manage each individual forum topic.

forum_id,

thread_id,

user_id,

lang_id,

title,

description,

 

Are those columns sufficient, I want to build this table correctly from the start.
