The best website creator is Notepad and a basic understanding of HTML and CSS. That might sound facetious, but it is the truth. The easy way is not always the best way. Spend some time learning how HTML works, look at the source (but do not copy) of other sites to gain a further understanding, then experiment with your own site.

As for forums there are TONS of free ones that work rather well; PunBB, SMF, phpBB2, etc. You can visit http://www.opensourcecms.com/ and then expand the Forum tree to find a listing and demo of a TON of forum packages.

If you are at a total lost for knowing HTML and CSS, you might try a free WYSIWYG editor called NVU. Since you want free, then that means your hosting site is going to be free and with banners/ads on it put there by the host's server. You can get a very good free hosting service, but you have to pay to get your domain name through them. If you can live with banners/ads and want Web Tools provided free, the Bravenet.com is a good place to start. You can always convert to a paid hosting later when you want. It has forums you can install, as well as, other neat tools to use.

Once you have learned HTML and CSS well enough, I would convert to using an editor like Matrix Y2K or Ace HTML 6 Pro. Fot multiple file uploads/downloads I recommend the free SmartFTP program. You'll find more free editors, menu builders at CoffeeCup. All very good and easy to use.

Haven't touched on the free graphics programs you may need.

If you need an actual web template, freewebsitetemplates.com offer quite a few free variations of web templates, just don't expect them to be up to html 4.1 standards;)
