    Unless you have fortunes to invest into this and actually know what you are doing/how to code, then you will have to use a script.

    Get it here:

    hxxp://source*forge.net/projects/scuttle/

    It's under GPL licence so it's free.

    Good luck with marketing, it's gonna be a tough job with Digg Delicious etc... around ;)

    you could also try Pligg, but Scuttle is much easier to handle but has less functionalities...
    Akarru also is a nice one, and PhpDug :)

    Have fun, especially for the Marketing as foufoutom says ;)

    IMHO if you are starting a bookmarking site there is no money to be made with this type of sites. The market is over saturated. The only way to make money with this type of money that comes in mind is:
    Making niche bookmarking sites; for instance bookmarking site for people that are interested in blackhat seo. So you are not a competition to digg, deliciuos... you are doing something special and you know your audience when you advertise

    well I DO WONDER WHICH OF THESE IS THE MOST EASY TO INSTALL (i dont want to spend hours of hours instead of setting up a website in some minutes and get some1 to make the header/design)

    I definitely agree with this. Just like finding any niche, a targetted one will have a better chance at success than a general one.

    This sounds like something you could get added to an existing similar project or branch from a framework like xoops. There's going to be a tradeoff between letting your ideas out in the wild where more technically adept people can implement them and taking on the burden of learning the tech stuff yourself. You don't have to hand it off completely to whatever your racist stereotype of a softwear developer is and you don't have to become an expert in PHP and SQL, but at some point there has to be an intersection of concept and implementation or it will remain a big fat waste of time.
