mIRC is for chatting on IRC.

mIRC doesn't host anything. And a message board doesn't have anything to do with IRC.

It's possible to post to a message board from mIRC using a sockets script, but you can't run or host a message board from mIRC itself.

What exactly are you wanting to do? There might be a way to do it if we know what you want to do.

Please don't say things like that if you're not completely sure.
It's possible to host a message board using a webserver script (of which there are a few available). You could also code the message board in mIRC and make sure browsers receive the correct html (basically using mIRC as a server-side language like PHP, ASP, etc).

Someone actually made a webserver SCRIPT? Why? If you want to host something on your computer, using standard (free) webserver software would be better, I would think.

Anyhow, my apologies for not knowing that someone made such a thing.

I agree completely, I was just pointing out that you can host a website/message board using mIRC (mIRC's socket implementation lets you listen for connections, not just connect to things).

That is really trivial. Perhaps it is a valid point that mIRC can do things that it wasn't designed for but really...

I made a webserver to host somes files that you want to share quickly. When someone dccs doesn't work, he can uses my web server and give a direct link to download the file from his computer. I also made a few other webservers but they were part of an addon. The last one I made was a web site connected directly to my mIRC. When someone loaded a page, it was made instantly using some informations found by my mIRC client on the channels (in this case, it was checking all the links and images it could found on the channels I were and logged them with a url,nick,server,time). Also, this addon (for the links) has a search feature.

It's just to let you know that, even if mIRC is only done for chatting, we can enhance it by doing almost everything that is IRC related, even webservers if the person is not afraid of learning a protocol. Also I made some webservers, mines are really the basis, I saw somewhere a person who coded a webserver for mIRC with dlls which supported MySQL for example, that is great coding smile

Just because it's possible doesn't mean it is the best way to do things. Using real webserver software is almost guaranteed to work better and can be set up to work with mIRC.
