I tried like.. some months ago and code my first forum. Turned out pretty well. Very.. newbish, but nevertheless it worked.
I'm about to create a more advanced now, like a version 2.
And I'm wondering how you guys would set up your db to maintain an easy way of accessing categories(and noticing the difference between a regular forum and a category), threads, posts, and ofcourse users.
I'm looking for some basic functionality here, but still kindof advanced. So.. any suggestions?
