Two days - you're kidding right.

Surely you can write something simple in that time. A discussion forum is hardly rocket science, especially with all the help ASP.NET gives you.

Just take the design of this one, if you can't think of how it should work. OTOH, use the new design, like the other JoS forums, not this legacy one.

Check out the ASP.Net Forum Developer Toolkit out on:

The ASP.NET Forums version 2.0 is now called CommunityServer::Forums.

Has lots of features, setup takes about 10 minutes, if you have SQL Server running somewhere on the network.

It comes with a "free" and a commercial license, depending on your use. In any case you get the whole source code.
Changenig the layout is pretty straight forward.

It used to also work with Integrated Windows Authentication (this feature has unfortunately been removed from the free version)

You can download it here:
