Hey there, After reviewing the ABC of forum building, I have decided to look for another script besides phpBB as it appears to be too intense for some not so internet savvy surfers...
I had a very educated person who loved the idea of the site and the chance to mingle and discuss things but she was so intimidated by the discussion forum that she never posted...she seems typical of my target audience
WHat discussion forum script (like WW here) would you suggest that is stripped of all the bells and whistles?
And have you had any luck adding portal like features like link directories?
A really simple yet powerful forums I use is punbb (punbb.org) it's not overloaded with useless features yet it is also easy to add mods if needed and easy to intregrate a site into the forums to use the same login, and database. my 2 cents -Mike
I'll vote for Yabb. It needs no external software, except Perl (which is usually available anyway), and with version 2.0 is very easy to change the appearance through a single CSS file and any number of HTML templates you want.
