I am after a message board that can preferably be hosted on my site (hosted at geocities). Could someone please advise a good (and free) message board / forum service that is preferably hosted on my URL?

Thanks

i don't believe that can be done on your geocities url, unless geocities offers something ?

you can try using a free remote hosted forum and use a frame to keep your url visible ?

i recommend ezboard as a remotely hosted forum... i use it on 2 of my sites.

I think singloon is right... I don't think yahoo!geocities support cgi which is required to host message board..
Boardhost.com is another good messageboard.. It doesnt have much features like ezboard but it's simple and straight forward... http://members.boardhost.com/drqmist

Ezboard is the best, but Coolboards.com is also around the same. So many boardes are like Boardhost, I dislike these ones, they have all topics on 1 page with replies shown, and you have to click a link to see different replys.

Thanks for all your input guys!

I have latched onto Easy Boards as it really impressed me and only had a banner at the bottom once I worked out how to get rid of the top one.

Once again Singloon put me onto a winning solution! Cheers

also another note about ezboards...

their support forum is always manned by ezboard staff who help you out and listen to your ideas and suggestions and feedback.

they also will have a 'no ad banner' version in the works and people interested have to contact one of the staff on the ezboard support forum called Chrtistine. I can't remember her email address though sorry...

i always check in on the ezboard support forums to see what's planned for the next versions - 5.3 should be soon http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
