    I find that SMF feels easier to use than phpBB.

    And I like all the easy to install packages, including the anti-spam options.
    Thanks all, will now either go for SMF or phpBB.

    Yes, I think you posted in the wrong section, because Forums are mostly coded in PHP, not in HTML. Anyway, I would vote for Vanilla because it's... different.

    I think many people underestimate Vanilla, it might not be the most feature-filled product but it's tightly written, semantically accurate (valid code is rare for forums) and it's got some beautiful underlying code. Even the paid products don't seem to have the most elegantly written code (from what I've seen)

    It should probably be said, phpBB has been hacked several times now. The last zero-day brought down their entire website for a few weeks. I'm not sure when this was last, I'm sure you can find it on Google but it wasn't very long ago, maybe 6 months.

    Of the very limited few free forum software that I've tried, Vanilla is the only one that has used OOP, I've not looked into Vanilla in detail so I don't know if it also makes use of MVC.
