I have been using Smf for 4years now, and it has been awesome
I've been using an older version of the forum since 2009. For various reasons I updated to the latest version, I've been putting it off because I thought it would be a problem, how wrong I was, it was so simple and worked with minimum fuss, all I've had to do is to add some graphics that I'd changed on my "old" version and job done! I wish I'd done it sooner
the best forum manager i have ever used, simple, free, bugs-free... and have lots of support.. thank you guyes
I used Kunena, Vbulletin, Xenforo, phpBB forum softwares and recentyly bbPress, but SMF is best. There are CMS-level portal packages and stylishly designed themes for SMF by third-party of SMF. It even excels vBulletin 4.x CMS and XenPorta 2 Pro on XenForo. SMF is the messiah for me.
