I want to have a "newsgroup" on my personal web page.  I'm working on a project with some friends and I want a place where we can have discussion "threads" on various topics.  It would be cool to write something in Delphi to do this...but I don't know where to start.

Hi knowIton,

 look for this at F. Piette freeware tools, programs, mailing list, user programs... etc.

I'm giving you the points, but which component is best for doing a newsgroup (where I can have discussion threads and the like).

Thanks,

Tom

Hi knowIton,

You better use this component for newsgroups :

http://www.rtfm.be/fpiette/icsuk.htm

But even better is downloading the whole ICS package. It's cardware, so you only have to send a postcard to the other and then you're registered.

If you download the ICS package you also got this program with source : NewsRdr. Which is a basic newsreader using TNntpCli component.

Next go to this page and read how to subscribe to the thread :

Then, you can read already all posted questions/Answers per month. Or just ask how to use the component to enhance your program.

Regards, Zif.
