    Can anyone recommend a free forum? I've tried PHP-Nuke and it was pretty good, addaboy.com uses Invision Power Board, which also looks good. Any comments, pros, cons, etc? FYI, the inquiry is because my roommate has a client that wants a basic forum set up. Not even custom graphics, just a forum. Worst case scenario I'll install one of the 2 previously mentioned. What's the easiest one to graphically customize?

    I JUST found out about this 10 min ago. We're planning to set it up tomorrow, tune it, and show it to the cust Friday. Yeah, set up should only take 5 min, but we're taking our lazy time and stressing out about it tonight

    Have you tried PHPBB? I played with it a little on awc.com and it seemed solid enough.

    Phpbb has some templating issues (it's very difficult to edit them) and Invisionboard is much better (functionality, looks, etc) as far as I've used. I'd reccomend invisionboard to anyone. If he needs any hacks/skins just go to www.ibplanet.com

    Yeah, I seem to recall a mention of ibplanet over at addaboy. I'm starting to look into it in more detail.

    phpBB has some optimization issues. On occasions, some of the php pages will create a spike in server load for no apparent reason.
