    I need a fairly basic, threaded (like a WWWBoard, or WWWThreads board) message board. However, there's a feature I feel is very important. That's pushing the threads with the newest replies to the top.

    Currently, all the threaded messageboards I've found have the locations of the topics "set in stone" so you end up having people forced to scroll down to the bottom of a screen just to reply to a message because that's a popular topic.

    Don't ask me why I can't just get a flat board (like UBB, Vbulletin and BoardPower) I dont feel like explaining it.. again

    I've checked out about 40 different boards at hotscripts.com and a few dozen more at other directories.. this gets VERY tedious. Any help you can give me would be much appreciated.

    thanks

    -Chuck

    Have you tried the message board called "Boardpower"? Its pretty easy to install and I find it easy to use.

    If you want to see what it looks like, just go here: www.jediliz.net/boardpower/boardpower.cgi

    I think the site the software is at is down right now, but it should be up in a few days. I believe its located at www.thewebmasterforums.com

    Whoops, I guess I didn't read your message clearly, I see you already mentioned Boardpower. There's another message board out there, called Yet Another Bulletin Board, but I don't know if it has the features you want. Its at www.yabb.com.ru

    I hope that helps you
