  • I had tried installing YaBB, which took hours, blocked my IP address, and never even worked. Then I tried this phpBB, and had it installed and running in probably half an hour! Also, it looks a lot newer and more professional.

  • Although the current version is a little bit old (a new one is in development) the board has everything one can imagine. Using well documented modifications (hundreds available) even subforums are possible. Masses of available styles allow different look and feel. A very active community is closing any security leak as fast as possible. Best of all: The installation is for dummies. I was absolutely new to php and MySQL, but the script was running within less than 10 minutes after the download.

  • phpBB is very bad BulletinBoard . Bugs and easy to hack BB :P . Small functions no subforums etc.

  • Almost all of the reviews are 5 stars. You simply can't find a better message board than phpBB. Unchanged liscense since the first day, great features, easy customization, mega support, and they are always working on a new version. Next release is going to be amazing.

  • This is by far the best discussion board I have ever seen. It is very efficenint, supports numerous modifications including "Fast Reply", in which you do not have to exit the thread view to make a post. Considering it's great support and user-friendlness, I think that the next version of phpBB (phpBB 2.2) shall be the best one yet! It supports an UNLIMITED amount of ranks for users on the board, so as your forum grows, the number of ranks can grow with it. I give this TEN THUMBS UP. May it live!
