There is no such thing as an "HTML Forum" unless it is the title of a forum or section of a forum.

And you are in over your head unless you're willing to dedicate months if not years to writing one. Also from the sounds of it, you're new to programming.

while it is possible for you to create a forum, you're better off finding something that already does what you want; other people will have spent years securing and testing and tweaking so that you won't have to.

However, if you're absolutely convinced that you need to build the forums yourself, you're going to need to learn how to use a server side language like Perl, PHP, Ruby, etc. You'll also want to learn about some sort of database software so that you can store your information, OR take a look at grimBB and how they store information in flat files and adapt that for your purposes.

Good luck.

HTML only cannot create a forum. You need a server side language + a database combination to start using forums.

HTML alone does not containt the ability to read & write interactivly with the OS, which would be required to work with a database. Therefore (as stated before in this post) you will need some sort of server side execution.
