i have a small site for family and friends and would like to allow them to post comments, recipes, random crap, etc. so what's the easiest way to integrate it with a html/css webpage?

i obviously don't think i need phpbb, just a way to allow users to fill out some simple forms, preview their responses, and approve their posts, which will automatically be put up on the page. thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

Try this one:

You just need for your host to provide Perl support and be able to follow instructions.

i thinks that more of a forum, what you may be looking for is either on
http://www.cutephp.com or
http://www.fusionphp.net

they both provide free php news systems with no databases involved which can most likely be used as you want them to be used.

do i need any special software to run these applications, either on my home system to edit it, or on my server to run it?

i'm not at all familiar with php and while i'm sure it wouldn't be a problem to set up any of these sites, i just don't know what requirements there are for it. do you need php or perl software to be able to run these free services? if so, what's the best way to procure such things?

thanks for the info and advice. i'm kind of overwhelmed, but definitely enjoying the learning process for this project.

PHP, Perl, ASP, and friends are server-side languages. Which means that if the script uses X, the server will need the software to support X. No scripting is needed by the browser (unless the site is made poorly).

You can edit server-side scripts using a text editor -- they are ordinary text files.

If you are paying for a Web host, they will probably have one or more of the above languages installed and available for you to use.

You will find your answer here:

I've been using them since they started and have not a problem with them. You just sign up and insert your code onto your website.
