  • This is very easy to setup. It is fast and simple. You guys must give it a try! A newbie can easily install it. Recommended to newbie's as its very simple and installation is just a click!

  • AEF is the best forum software that was ever created! The main aim of the AEF is to make a forum that's simple to use, yet feature packed. AEF has features that all the other forum software can only dream of. They are also going to launch the lang packs soon. This is the best software you want.

  • I've used other forum software, but none can match the speed AEF. If you want a software that is easy to install, good looking, and has SUPERFAST SPEED, then you want AEF. I bet you’ll like the admin panel better, and it is so simple to use. AEF is very fast and also has every feature loaded into it. The WYSIWYG editors and DOCK make you love this board. I fully recommend AEF to every forumer.

  • This forum script is really superb. The name Advanced Electron Forum suites it well since its really advanced and has more features then the others. To start with it has a Mac style dock. When the page loads it starts with an awesome animation. It has a shoutbox inbuilt into the forum. The WYSIWYG editor is also just like Word 2007's editor. It has all the regular forum features so I am not getting into it. But it can still improve and every release makes this script better. Its also very fast.

  • Recently I was looking around for forum/bulletin board scripts; I had been previously using phpBB with much dedication. After a search on google, I found a small website called At the time, I had little hope for this script, as the website had quite a few bugs. After installing this script, I was amazed! There aren't nearly as many files as in phpBB, but so much more functionality. The admin panel is rich with features, along with a nice design and layout features. Recomend!
