Does anyone know where I can get a forum coded in html with no Javascript or CGI?

I was just trying to make it simple. Whats the simplest way to make a forum?

Forums (BBS') can't just do html to html, they need to be told what their doing, either through PHP or Perl.

UGN Security uses the (nonfreeware) InfoPop UBB.Classic, it's a Perl BBS system, it works quite well.

InfoPop also has UBB.Threads which is a PHP/MySQL bulletin board system.

Theres also Invision, PHPBB, there are loads of boards.

Why do you need one with no Javascript or Perl (CGI)

Your logic is really backwards...if you use a less powerful language for your application(such as HTML) then the end result will be more complex than if you had used a more powerful language, just a thought.

I'm guessing he can't use CGI probably because his host won't let him run any CGI scripts.

If you want to keep it simple, you could try using PHP and if you don't know or don't have access to a MySql database you could try using text files to store the messages/profiles/members/etc.

You can find some PHP tutorials here :
