well if u mean something like this site, its running a package called phpbbplus, which you can find from here...

http://www.phpbb2.de/

its more or less phpbb forums with a bunch of popular mods and addons "built-in". server software you would need would be a webserver (apache), with php installed, and a database backend (typically mysql for this kinda application).

Is this what you're searching for? http://www.freeforumworld.com/

How much do you know about creating web pages? I may find something for you to learn about creating web pages. ;)

It's a name for your url address,

If you want to use your clan name, type something like myclanname then the address will look like this:

There are some ways to create web pages.

1: Write html codes
2. Design web pages using a program. Some are free and some aren't free. I'll check freewebs.com later tonight or tomorrow. I think it should come with a web editor.

I enjoy writing html codes because it's fun. If you don't like to type a lot, then you probably want to use a web editing program.

phpbb is free, but u need to have a capable server :-? ...unless u were looking at someplace that hosted phpbb forums.
