    I want to add a forum to my website but Im not really sure how to do it. I know it is kind of a noob question but is there any software or templates that I can get for free that I can use to make a forum.

    Get yourself Simple Machines Forum. It's free and it's superb. Great on resources as well and has loads of addons and templates. You shouldn't have a problem getting it running if you can read a read me. :)

    You can go to fantastico in your control panel and install wither SMF (http://www.simplemachines.org/) or phpBB (http://www.phpbb.com/) which are free and good (I recommend SMF)

    or if you want a more premium forum and you have the money, then you can buy vBulletin (http://www.vbulletin.com/) or IPB (http://www.invisionpower.com/) I recommend vBulletin (that's what BHW uses)

    or if you don't want to host the forum on your website do any of these:
    Code:

    Hope that helps!
