I never saw this post but I will list some. Xenforo, Vbulletin, IPB, SMF, Discourse, Flarum (as posted), myBB, phpBB, Vanilla, BBPress (wordpress related). Those are the ones that come to mind. There are many other free off brands out there. myBB and phpBB are probably the best free though I'm hearing discourse is free too. Seems to be what Sublime Text forums use unless I'm wrong

Yeah [uSER=157]@NewsProject[/uSER] I read your post on Code Forum. That reminds me of vBulletin Cloud Hosting. Which is a waist. But some people prefer it because it's easy maintenance and saves them a headache or 2. I can see that I guess considering so many Xenforo 2 users prefer to have someone assist them. (not me. hehe pro for life ;) )

I would suggest XenForo, vBulletin 5, IPB and Woltlab. All them are modern designs and have capabilities to extend it to more than just a forum. You can turn it into a blog, media gallery, resources or more! Check out their websites and look into it in detail and decide which one is for you.

Hey there @JoyFreak glad to have you back. Xenforo is very good!

Discourse is $100/month. Self host is free.

 

If anyone can afford Discourse for $100 a month, they might as well use services such as IPB's Cloud Plan - you get more out of it with a software with more features than Discourse itself.

 

NodeBB is a nice modern software similar to Flarum and Discourse. I'd check it out if anyone needs a new software!

I have never heard of NodeBB that's an interesting share. I stick to Xenforo 2 only because it's something I'm used to and is one of the best platforms for customization. But thanks for sharing a new software I haven't heard of.

Yes @Laifot, @Sir Twisted uses myBB on his forum unless I'm mistaken. I joined it just yesterday. It's a really nice one too. He uses a dark theme but it looks really well put together.

 

Thank you! Mybb is amazing free software, I've been using it for close to 6 years. Themes can vary, you can get stunning paid and free themes, but as I'm a web dev and designer, I prefer to make all my own themes.

Interesting you decided on making your own theme. I actually have a theme for mind piff I made but decided to go for this theme as I wanted to keep content organized and felt like this theme would do us better. Plus the attractive welcome notice setup had my attention on this theme. I am actually a web developer too just not for a job yet as I've had a struggle holding me back. Your theme is probably one of the best for myBB I've seen yet.
