    Well if you want a messageboard you'll need some kind of server-side scripting language like PHP, ASP, Perl, etc. I use http://www.phpbb.com/ (which needs PHP and a database). But if you don't have what's required, you could try http://www.proboards.com/ for free, remotely hosted boards. They have popups though.

    And I use http://www.quickchat.org/ for a chat rooms which is again remotely hosted.

    first I tried that on the actual page I was working on and I couldnt even get the PASTE to work...and then WHEN i did thru this other method it did NOTHING....please id love to know where Im going wrong........all the help page told me was to do all that and them BINGO!!..some icon would appear and a link would be created so I can use that to link it to the to the page

    I probably can't help much unless you give us a link to the page where you got the code from, or paste the code itself here. We'd have to see it in context to know how implement it in your page.
