    PHPbb Bulleting Boards

    Hi there,

    Is there any advantages to using PHPbb bulletin boards? I heard these boards were free? But are there ads on them?

    Thx

    No ! no ads on them ! they are pretty good for beginner webmasters
    BTW I don't think your post belongs to the PHP forum

    But I don't understand -- why would they offer something like this for free? What is the reasoning behind it?

    Thx.

    phpBB is good for beginning webmasters, but when it comes down to user friendlyness it sucks ***.
    Invision Power Board is the best software in my opinion. It costs little, is very powerfull and easy to write modules for.
