    Thumbs up which forum software do you recommend

    I recently came across

    http://www.simplemachines.org/

    and of course the new release ( ver. 3 ) for phpbb.com

    I use vBulletin but I dont want to pay for another version.

    So which do you recommend I use? Or is there another one you prefer?

    I use PhP5.

    I recommend PunBB. Very fast, lightweight and simple to use and administer.

    I have always used phpBB, but just looked punBB and it looks quite good. I will try to install it now.

    phpBB, PunBB, and SMF are all great free forums, especially if you are looking for something simple. If you want a lot of features, I would recommend Invision Power Board: http://community.ipslink.com/board/

    Do not you want to tell that phpBB is simple and not feature reach?

    SMF is a great free forum. It really depends on what you need but I have used punbb, smf, phpbb. If you need to explore the specs and features a bit to help make a decision as to what is the best forum software, i suggest forummatrix.org
