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?

Thank you.

PHPBB (free)

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.

vBulletin is the most search engine friendly bulletin board. Probably the most secure one "out of the box" as well.
