    Question Best free forums to use?

    I need to find a good forum to use for my website GameGamut ...

    Anything that is free, php and mysql, and not ib or mb, and has a lot of features.

    Thanks

    http://www.phpbb.com/
    That's what I would consider the best free PHP bulletin board.

    yes, phpbb does do the job good.

    You may have to do some MODing to get it to your standards though.

    I suggest you get a vBulletin License, but phpBB is also good, except for some fewer functions...

    lol, "Hey, im dirkduck, but I forgot my username" . Anyways, I would suggest PHPBB myself, but since you dont want to use that, then I'd go with www.powerboards.tk. I know the guy that is desiging them, currently there is a non-mySQL version (which is very good), and hes coming up with a MySQL version (its very nice).
