I would consider just writing my own forum software but just don't have the time to secure it. I can only imagine the amount of work that would go into making sure nobody can hack it considering the countless people working on phpbb (open source) and it still getting hacked on a regular basis.
I am only concered with people posting questions and answering questions. I don't need any fluff beyond that. Kinda like this forum.
In phpbb I have removed all images, email (except for notices), private messaging and almost all personalized settings for users. My goal is to make it streamlined and fast. Even with all the modifications it's pretty slow. I don't even use the control panel, I just edit everything directly in the database.
So, is there any open source forum software out there that is similiar to bestbbs but with less options?
I spent hours looking over the net to find something like this, I have to thank you again for pointing me to it.
