I have been using Phorum on several sites ever since the first versions came out. What can I say, it is easy to install, wonderfull template system and very very stable. All in all I would say that it is one of the best if not the best out there. Fast, secure, easy to create mods, easy to template. I look forward to see Phorum evolve further. Keep up the good work Dev team!!!
i definitely agree with jsjwilson. The criticism of the previous posts are horribly outdated. I've used phorum version 3 in the past and although i already liked it - i must admit that back then it required quite a bit of knowledge and reading. It has undergone some major version changes though and one of the things they have greatly improved is the installation. It is now incredibly easy to install! Besides speed, the amount of control and features you have is far superior to other forums.
The new Phorum 5.1.16a is fantastic. I've got 5 older versions running for over a year and no problems, but the NEW versions has so many added attractions. Its intuitive and wonderful to use with many added modules and added safety features! Try it! You'll love it!
Having tried various other forums including PHPBB and SMF they all have their merits but this one comes up trumps for me. It's very configurable and the support forum is very useful with answers and requests being answered quickly. The installation is simple and you can be up and running very quickly, although an understanding of basic web configurations will help. I also like the additional modules that can be added for various enhancements spam protection, message formatting etc.
The criticisms written in other reviews are very outdated, or frankly unbelievable without suspecting impatient numpties were involved in a setup attempt! The script is easy to install, the easiest by far to intergrate into your own website design, associated with a very helpful community, brilliant add on mods if necessary. The phorum, is at heart uncomplicated, uncluttered, fast, easy to mod and integrate. I've searched hard for the best forum for my folk music community, and this is it!!!!!
