Hi,

I would like to create a forum for my website.

Are there any free applications out there that are good and stable or am i better off buying a license from someone like vBulletin?

If so is vBulletin the best one or are the others that are better?

Thanks

There are a few 'free' forum platforms such phpBB and Simple Machines. Just be aware that you get what you pay for so vBulletin might be the best option.

The reviews for phpbb are really high most giving it between 4 & 5 stars, so I might try this first and upgrade if i find it does not work as well as i'd like.

How hard are these to intergrate? as i only have basic knowledge of php.

Thanks

I have now intergrated PHPBB & it seems to be ok for what i need. VBulletin looks 100x better but phpbb is perfect for what i want.
