Recommendations for Forum software


Recommended Posts

hi all,

I am going to set up a forum (nothing to do with gaming) and I wondered if the members here have some recommendations.  I've looked at the various free forum software apps around, they seem to be much of a muchness, but I don't want to set something up and discover a fatal  flaw. I am not a developer, though I do have some computer skills.  I just want something straightforward that I can install and get various people to help mod, etc.


Any recommendations?

A popular standalone forum setup uses https://www.phpbb.com Check the footers of forums that you like and follow the link to the makers.

I develop Joomla CMS websites and if clients want a forum added I set them up with https://www.kunena.org so they can have the same log-in avoiding the need for Battlefront sales & community's two separate logins.

See what your hosting package cpanel / Softaculous has as options for convenient installation.
