    You could download one and dissect it.

    I've personally tinked around with PHPBB which is free to download. I've only changed the look (CSS) of one but you can get into the files (PHP in that particular case) to learn from.

    Ummmm...CSS really has nothing to do with creating an on-line forum other than you can use CSS to control how it looks. The functionality of the forum is implemented via server-side programming and a database.

    You cannot "create" a forum with CSS. CSS merely controls appearances, colors, sizes, fonts, etc........

    see above replies.

    When you say "add stuff" what do you mean? Add features or add content? If you want to add features you will need to code it in whatever server-side language you choose to author in.

    Domain names are a different story altogether. You will need to buy one and assign it to your server space (assuming you have some). If you do not you will need to buy some server space from a web host. Most of these will/can provide a domain name for you. I use and recommend ipowerweb.com. I'd check it out, they have a lot of built in features, even bulletin boards.
