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.

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.
