How to make forums

P: n/a
I am interested in making my own forums (powered by Python). I was
wondering what would be needed to make one, so that I can start making
it.

I have always used the login script I made (it uses PHP and MySQL),
will people be able to use the forums using a PHP/MySQL login script?
Will it makes things more complicated?

Of course I will answer any questions you may have.

If your forums were written in Python, it wouldn't make very much sense
to write your login script in PHP. You probably could share enough data
to make that possible, but why on earth would you want to?

$_=" 5_2 8_2\n 3/*3 \\ 4/*3 \\\n / *7\\/*7 \\\n| *17 |\n \\ *15 /\n 3".
"\\ *11 /\n 5\\ *7 /\n 7\\ *** /\n 9\\*/";while(/(.)([0-9]*)/gs){print$1
x($2||1)}print"\n"

The cgi module will be of use to you:

http://www.python.org/doc/current/lib/module-cgi.html

On a related topic, how would one implement something equivalent to PHP
'sessions' using Python to keep track of logged on users etc?

Thank you. I will read about that module. I wrote the PHP script a
while ago. I think it's been about a year now. I've been using Python
for a shorter amount of time. I will make a Python login script. I'll
do all of this later today (it's 3:24 AM right now, I am very tired.)

Oh yeah, before any of you make a comment like "just use already made
code" or "use Zope", don't. That's not the purpose of this project. I
want to use my brain, my Python skills, the resources I have,
creativity, etc., to make a forum. I want to learn how to solve things
myself, and to explore the unknown.

Anymore suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thanks for the ones
already made.

I see an inherent contradiction here...
