DevShed continues their look at creating a simple treaded discussion foum with part two in the series, a focus on creating the administrator panel to help you manage users and the topics/comments they make.
This article, the second of two parts, will show you how to set up an administration area for a threaded discussion forum, and some of the functions you might want an administrator to manage.
Included is the functionality to get a listing of all of the topics, delete topics quickly, start a new topics, and manage a "blacklist" of bad words to keep out of the discussions. Of course, the code is all there and they explain each piece of it. They keep it simple though - the code is pretty procedural with only functions dividing up the functionality into the pieces.
