I am also confused. Try to give a better description of what you are trying to do. Your topic title says one thing, but then the thread says something else.

Okay, well bassically i want a forum actually embedded into my flash site rather than having a link to an externally hosted free forum. Like this one i guess but with a flash site.

Most forums do not like to be included/embedded/framed into a page. Actually that goes for most any php script in general. When you do that, you change the relative file paths, and the script doesnt work right.

I recommend against "embedding", however you can host your own forum, you just have to pay for the software. Uploading and installing forum software is pretty easy and is well laid out in the documentation.

you can also check what your webhost service might offer. for example on my host I can set up a forum with a few clicks in the site admin panel.

if your host uses Fantastico it pretty much does all the work for you. The only thing you may have to do is allow it access to the DB/MySQL server so it can set the database tables up.
