Hey,

I am going to make a forum. I am going to choose between Simple Machines Forums or PhpBB forums. I think I like PhpBB better but has anyone had any good or bad experiences with these forums or can anyone sugest another one?

Check out MyBB... I think it's much better that both of those... but that is just my opinion.

Another free choice that is easy to setup and customize in PunBB.

Thanks The Notch,

It's now between PhpBB and MyBB. I've already uploaded PhpBB to my server so I'll see how that goes and test it out and then I might test out MyBB.

Thanks,
~Matt :whistling:

As your host I suggest trying both out before opening, this way you don't have to move members and such like I did. :whistling:
