Do I have to have my own web site in order to use YaBB chat forum or create a forum on another web page? How does it work? I am going to create my own web site sooner or later, and I want to start a forum on it.

Yes, to have a YaBB forum (or any forum system for that matter), you need to have an existing website.  Installation is a snap.  Simply click the downloads link on this site, download YaBB 2.2.1, and unzip the contents of the zip file.  Read the included Quick Guide which explains how to upload the files to your existing website and setup your forum. If you get stuck, you can post here for help.

Additionally, bonus features were added.  These include additional fonts on the post page for YaBBC code, the ability to reorder or add tabs to the main menu (when in tabbed style), and the ability for users to drag and expand the size of the textarea used for the message body when creating posts.
