    Hello guys its a pleasure to meet you all. Im Thekorean haha sounds funny right? ive been a while watching alot of threads here on the forum with another account. Now i decide to change my life and not be lazy waiting for something. i have an idea for a forum-site. the big problem is that im a newbe
    :oops::(. i have An idea of what i want.. so today im here asking if you can help me with this problem. before all thanks for investing youre time and reading this thread. Im stuck with the theme part of my forum-site and i really want it to be like black hat wolrd theme or the warrior forum site. So do you know some site that offers the same themes? And finally one last question. if i want to make a forum like blackhatworld but with the niche i want... what are the things that i need to expect affoard and learn for a newbe like me? i thank you all with all my hearth even if you dont answer. i really fall in love with this site. i love how users can interact with other users by a thread and help them with some problems or even better helping them financially! . in this world that i watch plenty of fucked up people. its good to know that there are sites like this one that some one with nothing can still have a opportunity to change their lifes.

    Hey welcome.
    Depends on your budget. You likely won't find anything like bhw's theme unless you pay a designer, or study how to make forum themes.
    You can get started with a forum for free with
    Code:

    You can find free themes for it here

    Growing a forum from scratch is very difficult in my opinion. If you have quality content for a hungry niche, you'll do well.
    As for what you'll need to learn, most of the technical stuff is already set up for you once you install the forum script.
    From there it's about moderating your users, growing and cultivating a community.
    Good luck!
