I was wondering what the best language for making web boards. Currently i only know html and some javascript, besides the language for web boards what would be another one for me to learn that would help me making web pages?

Where ever Gizmo is
HTML (Especially XHTML) is something that forum owners have wanted more and more of from their web forums, especially with CSSed elements (for colors/styles).

Additionally a MySQL/PHP backend is the best option at this time for forums...

Having "plugin" support (for features and the like) is also a good idea as it will allow users to add in features without having to hack existing code.

A few things to steer away from would be Zend or IonCube encoding, if users cannot modify the source for their own needs (features and/or styles) they will not use their product, a few forum solutions tried to go this route and almost ended up dying out completely.

This is Gizmo btw.

This forum is Perl/Flat File based. It should be noted that we're migrating to a PHP/MySQL solution as it'll be less server intensive...

(Gizmo again!)
