Message Board Software Suggestions Needed


Recommended Posts

I want to add a discussion board to my web site and I'm looking for suggestions for software.

Here are my requirements:

- My web server is .NET

- I only care about message board functionality

- It has to be FREE

- It has to be easy

Anyone have a suggestion?

Anyone have expirence with Community Server or ASP.NET forum?

I suppose I could write my own, but why reinvent the message board?

Those are some free forum hosting services that don't require you to have a server. Unfortunately, they all look like this forum :(

I think the best forum hoster is vBulletin. Every time I go to one of those boards, I love it.

All of those are completely unacceptable. I want to host the discussion board so that I have complete control over its content.

Any other suggestions?

I found this on the website I got one of my HTML template for my website (not done yet):

BTW, I'll register immediately after it goes online :D

Good information there. I have already thought the issues through which is why I want to host it myself.

Oh, uh... well, never mind then. :D

Ha ha.

You can get the phpBB software:

Or get the dull Phorum:

I would go for phpBB. It's what vBulliten and most all great forums are made upon, so it has to be good.

I guess. Thanks for taking it out of that 2-way conversation platform. I felt like a public pm.

BTW, how much information can you fit into that server?

YetAnotherForum is a .NET based forum. It is the highest rated free .NET forum on 411asp.net. The forum looks nice. http://forum.yetanotherforum.net/
