    Almost all forums have instructions IN the installation itself, and some others have FAQs covering a few points about the installation.

    What forum software are you trying to install?

    I am unsure myself. You could use a site that hosts free forums, like ''forummotion''. Many tools to work with, and has an option for ''Simplified'' or ''Advanced'' for beginners / advanced users.

    Finding a guide is making you depressed? :/

    Download MyBB and upload to a free host such as Freehostia, or paid host such as DreamHost.

    I think he's looking for a guide on how to create one. (Im terrible with coding this kind of stuff). I just use forummotion until I get better using a forum, then I'll take the time from my busy Starcraft II / Warcraft III schedule to learn how to code. :p

    He must be using Google translator, I think he means he wasn't impressed to being unable to find a guide to creating a forum.

    You can you InvisionFree. It's a decent free forum software, and they host it for you.

    just go to Documents of any forum's official website and you'll get installation instructions...

    www.simplemachines.org

    Free Forum with endless amounts of free skins and add ons!

    http://www.phpbb.com/

    Free, but takes some effort to make it look good, also one of the earliest forum systems, so obviously, with fame, come problems. :O

    With regard to creating my own forum, will I have to learn a code language?

    HTML and CSS. If your forum gets big, PHP would also be good to know.

    You don't have to learn any coding languages to run a forum. If you want to go in and make any changes outside of existing plugins, then you will need to learn something...otherwise you do not.

    There are many sites that offer service for this type of thing for free. They make the whole forum for you and all you need to do is add the topics and so on. Basically it'll be your very own forum, it just won't have a domain (.com) until you buy it.

    VB Forums I found were very good and easy to use.

    I'd recommend that you start your first forum off in a free forum host like www.forumotion.com then later on develop into the more advanced things once you've gotten use to it.

    Well, yes essentially, you can use advertisements if you have alot of traffic, and you can even use postloop. Get enough referalls and your site will slowly regain points, which you can cashout. Donations and competitions can generate income too. Linkbucks and sites like linkbee can generate views, but some people dont like sites that are cluttered with ads and backlinks.
