Adding a .NET forum without a database driller41 msg:3653572 12:15 pm on May 19, 2008 (gmt 0) Hi, I would like to add a forum to my site which runs on .net1.1
I can find lots of free .net applications to add the forum, but they all use databases - I am wondering, are there any out there which do not run on databases?

A forum can't work without a database of some sort. In its simplest form it could write to a text file, but that is even a crude database. Beagle msg:3656957 12:28 am on May 23, 2008 (gmt 0)
If your needs are simple, there are some blogging platforms that run on flatfiles. Not exactly a forum, but depending on how you set it up it can have some of the same functionality. We're talking extremely simple here: you need a database for bells and whistles.
