I have a web page that needs a message board. I am not a software
engineer and most of what I read about phpbb I don't understand. Is
there some book like pphpbb for dummies I can read with lots of
pictures? If I have to be a software engineer to use this board is
there an easier message board available?
Thanks for your read.

Re: extreme newbie has a question about phpbb
In that case running a message board exposed to the Internet is
generally not a good idea. Using forum software like phpbb means you
have to track security updates in an active way, and make sure the
account used for running the software can't hurt your system that much.
Otherwise some bot will find your messageboard and use it to exploit the
known bugs and leaks.
If you like the blue-yellow pictures... or the orange flags ;)
Ask a software engineer / sysop who has knowledge of this stuff to set
