    Hi,

    Do you mean you want to me a bulletin board with flash 5 as this would require complex coding and would not be easy?

    I've seen it done in Flash.(I'm a member of a community built in flash 5. I've even done a simple one myself, even though it was "only" a guestbook.

    First of all you need to have access to serverscript and a database on your server. I guess it could be done using simple text/xml-files but that would really have an impact on the performance.

    How to actually show the posts in flash depends a lot on how the should display. For a list of subjects like in a forum I would create using a movieclip with a textfield(s) showing the subject name and other usefull texts. And of course a button that when clicked upon triggers the load and display the text/texts.
