    I have looked around the web for information on building a forum in flash. So far I have not had much luck.

    Is it there a reason that forums are not built in flash, too hard, too slow, too buggy?

    I am just starting down the road to learning php and such. My coding skills are very limited but I am learning. I love working with flash. My html skill is just as bad as my php skill. I would much prefer to build my site in flash.

    Any sugestions?

    Friends Of Ed (http://www.friendsofed.com) devotes an entire chapter to a PHP/Flash forum in the book Foundation PHP for Flash, you might want to check that out.

    Well, i've been working with Actionscript, PHP and MYSQL for some time and I would be very wary of making a Flash forum. You will need some help in my opinion and some decent knowledge of how things work. This will definately be a time consuming process

    Take a look at http://www.phpforflash.com/board/ that is taken from the Foundation PHP for Flash and there is an active community that keeps expanding it (avatars etc).

    If you drop by http://www.flashforums.com later this evening I will be uploading Beta One of my Bulletin Board which runs using PHP and MySQL with a Flash Front End.

    You may want to look into Ming, a swf library with PHP wrappers that allows you to generate swf on-the-fly on your PHP server.
