    and welcome to the ASP.NET forums.

    may anyone help if they can

    What are you looking for and which skills did you already master? If you're beginning with ASP.NET I suggest you take a look under the Learn tab on this website where there's a myriad of information available to learn from already.

    Are you asking how to build a forum, such as this one?  Or did you mean "web form", not "web forum"?

    If you are asking how to build a forum, you will not get an answer here.  This forum is for asking for help with specific coding problems, not for how to write an entire project.

    Frankly, writing a forum is a large undertaking, and one that has been done by others many times before.  Google for existing forum software, find one that provides the features you want, and use that.

    Then, think out your design and start writing it.  When you hit specific problems, post your code and ask questions.

    Build a web forum? Sounds like you are trying to reinvent the wheel. Someone has done it before.

    As ASP.NET core is here, you should pick up MVC. There is razor page, but that is different from web form. Anyway, if you don't want to get behind the dot net core, you have to learn new stuff anyway, better to pick up MVC. (I come from web form, but am learning MVC.)
