PHP Forum Help


#1

Hello,

I have an ambitious project that I am trying to get off the ground. I am making a writing website for teenagers. I was wondering if anyone could direct me to any free PHP Forum sites or free PHP forum software that will allow me to do the following things:

-Allow each user to have three different “levels” in certain categories to display there writing ability. I want these to be displayed underneath there avatar every time they post and I want it so all users can see it but the only people who can modify it are the moderators.

-Allow a section in the user’s profile to display “badges” which will be small pictures representing badges that only the moderators can add.

I am not sure how to go about doing this, everything else I can handle.

Thanks.

What do you have so far?

What I’d suggest is to start with one thing at a time, and slowly expand it by adding functionality, possibly through OOP.
