Course Description

UPDATED VERSION 2016

This course covers THE #1 forum platform on the internet - phpBB.

I keep it plain and simple. I do everything on my computer and explain relevant concepts along the way. You will be learning by doing, so it is easy for you to follow.

First you will learn about the installation, and then about such important topics as:

  • Proper forum structure
  • User and group permissions
  • Customising style and functionality
  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
  • Wordpress integration


You will learn many best practices and things that don't come to mind until, sometimes, it's too late. But you will be ahead of the game.

By the end of this course you will have all tools necessary to create a forum for the community you envision.
