Get a Wordpress website and download the BB press plugin, easy and it works well and easy to manage. A really good way to start anyway. Good luck

Hi,

If you're a beginner i will recommend starting with Phpbb, Because it's very easy and handy, also Xenforo is pretty cool and easily customizable. But Vbulletin is the best of all . Also Mybb is good and comes with really good and amazing themes and some big forums are using it.

Best Regards
Vineservers

It's expensive but a very good forum software that has excellent support. I've lurked around there since there beta version was out. I have not started a forum since 2006 but if I'd start one again, that's the software I'd choose.
I had thought about moving my forums over to v bulletin software but after they came out with connect 5 I just don't like it.

Still thinking of moving my forums over to another software eventually and think that I will be going with xenforo.

I like it better and xenforo is what I'd choose to start it with as well.

I'm currently using mybb and it's an okay software for being free. The admin panel of mybb is nice and clean and easy to use.

OK here are some rookie questions:

- What options are there for installing forum software, besides buying a computer and making it a dedicated server in my home or at my office?

- Can I buy space from a company and would it be reasonable is buying an inexpensive computer a better option?

vbulletin 5 is a terrible, terrible product. vbulletin 3 was fantastic, 4 was passable. vbulletin is hemorrhaging market-share, mainly to Xenforo.

A lot of admins use vBulleting. May it has got more plugins and easier to use but the license itīs to expensive. SMF itīs very easy to use and free, myphpbb itīs more complicate to install plugins but itīs more cunstomizable. Itīs free too

vb 3 series was the best, but they're on vb5 now, which is terrible. their customer service was really bad for me. I owned several licenses to VB and couldn't have been more happy to sell them off. most of the vb modders have left the building as well. it just seems like not many people like vb after vb3. vb4 sucked and vb5 sucks now and they don't seem that interested in making it better.

Xenforo is making a big splash with it being fairly well coded, fast loading, and now a lot of devs are jumping over to that because that's simply where the buyers and users have been migrating to.

If you're spending money, then you go with the company who is rising and doing well, not the one sliding into the dumpster.

LOL @ hemorrhaging.

It's like flushing the toilet and all the water is red because you broke one.

Hi,

I tried several forum software and opted for mybb and I am not disappointed with it. Very simple to understand and use. I especially like the ability to change your forum templates (php and css) and language files on the fly from within the software. The mybb community support forum is excellent. Quick responses to my problems and they even offered to check my site due to one problem but I managed to resolve it myself after a nights reading.

I think if you're just starting out, start with something free, especially if you've never done any sort of foruming before. That's the best way to get started. InvisionFree, ZetaBoards, and XenForo are some of the ones that have been listed here. ProBoards is also another good one. I've only ever used Invisionfree, Zetaboards, and Proboards, and they're all pretty good. I've been a member on XenForo boards, and it's okay, I suppose. I haven't ever been staff on one though, so I dunno. I really like Invisionfree's ACP though, it's simple enough when you're starting off.

Of course, if you have money to spare and know what you're doing, vBulletin is pretty good. The first forum I ever joined was on vBulletin and the forum I currently admin on is vBulletin, and it's pretty good. It's a lot easier to get used to it once you've been staff on other boards, haha.

I'm leaning towards Xenforo, many well known communities have switched to Xenforo and I personally love the simplicity of the software.
