How would I go about programming a forum software using CI?
I know some basic PHP, HTML, and CSS.
If possible to make a forum software using CI, what would be the logical first step in doing so?

Yes it is possible.
The first step is to plan you software from the ground to the roof.
Then start programing and designing.

How to Create a PHP/MySQL Powered Forum from Scratch. It's not written for CodeIgniter, but it could be a good starting point.

Thanks.
I think I will use plain PHP for now, basing my software off of that tutorial.

If you're basically going to code the forum from a tutorial, why not just use a pre-built solution like phpBB?
