Tools that make this possible include Zoho Discussions, a web application that will guide you through the process of forum creation step by step.
The process couldn't be quicker. First you have to choose what style of forum you want to create from among the available options. Once the forum style has been chosen, you can give it a name, assign it a web address and add a brief description so that any user can find it.
Once these steps have been carried out, you can start to use your Zoho Discussions forum which includes a simple, easy-to-use interface, threads of different kinds, user management, messages you can personalize and may more options.
The free account lets you create a maximum of two forums without sub forums, with just one moderator and a 100MB limit for attachments and there is also a private forum available.
