Can you suggest me a forum program ssqp msg:3833950 9:09 pm on Jan 24, 2009 (gmt 0) Hi everyone. I am a beginner of websites. Recently I want to start a simple forum. Can you suggest me a forum program that has enough functions and features for small discussions?

YABB (Yet Another Bulletin Board) also free, perl based
Over these, I convince clients the $160 license and $40/annual renewal is well worth the investment for vBulletin.
See what people are using most of, this will tell you "what's best."

Yes, I recently installed 2 software's and agree with rocknbil. See: [ ...] webmasterworld.com
If you have the money I would pay for vBulletin. However, you could also start with a free program such as SimpleMachine and then update the software to vBulletin once you get traffic and think your site has potential to generate revenue.

I second for phpBB - also in terms of support through forums probably the best choice. MWpro msg:3835377 7:33 am on Jan 27, 2009 (gmt 0)
vBulletin is the most search engine friendly bulletin board. Probably the most secure one "out of the box" as well.
