Forum / Bulletin Board

 Forum/Bulletin Board icon the Web Hosting Cpanel 4 allows you to install a pre-made forum called XMB. The XMB Forum is a PHP web-based bulletin board. Unlike an email list or newsgroup, the XMB Forum creates a forum on your web site that allows users to post questions and receive replies, all from their web browser. This allows you to choose from a variety of graphical interfaces and smilies - little faces that communicate the mood of the writer Smile. Once a forum has been created you can modify it extensively, from adding new sub-forums to changing the visual appearance of the board. Be sure to visit the XMB Forum web site - - for more information on how to customize and use your XMB Forum

Note: Keep in mind that each separate installation of XMB forum takes up approximately 2.7MB, and will grow in size with the popularity of the forum.

To install an XMB forum:

  1. Click on the XMB Forum link in the Tools area.

  2. Enter the name of the forum folder in the available field. Note that the folder must be on the top level of your site.

  3. Click on the Install button button.
