Hello everyone, i would like some help on programming since i am not

really good at php.

The question is that, i am making a forum for my own web page and i

dont know what security measures i have to take, what is cookies used

for and the algorithm for the forum, i.e. should i store the comments

in the mysql database or in a text file and also most importantly how

do i implement the smilies and such. Maintaining it wouldnt be a

problem because i know i have to get some off and store it physically

on my computer if there are too many comments and i knw the basic

stuff. Just need help on the advance things like networking and

security. Thank you for anyone's help... :D[/quote] -php- web design

No, don't do this. Download and install one of the ten zillion such boards
that probably already exist, e.g. phpBB (and keep it patched).
