No, that's basically it ... you might want to add javascript in order to handle client-side scripting (javascript allows you to trigger event-based commands).

Re: Building a forum

You can use open source software like phpBB or bbpress(worpress plugin) to make a forum. Many other free scripts are also available to make forum.

Re: Building a forum

Yeah Varindia, indeed by "build a forum" I read "develop a forum" but maybe the OP meant "start a forum". Open source solutions are of course the way to go if you don't need anything too customized: they're easier to maintain, a lot of mods have been developped aroundg them (e.g. phpbb) and they are safer (though more likely to become targets of automated hacking tools). If you're considering a solution for commercial use, I'd recommend Vbulettin (the most reliable forum software so far, but you need to pay a license fee).
