What is the best way to "Structure" a forum? I currently have it so that the sections are the DB's, the different threads are the table, and the posts are the rows. Is there a better way to do this, or is this a good method?

Probably would be better to do it in one database and then seperate tables for each item; such as the following structure:


Database: forum

Table: forums
Table: threads
Table: posts
Table: pm
Table: users



Then link between the tables using unique IDs (if that makes sense).

Anyways, Hope this helps.
