So, if we were only talking about the free ones....which would you suggest?
I have never used a forum, but I want one. I want to be able to skin it how I want, or at least give it my own header image that matches my site's header and choose a color scheme.
Also, which ones are really newbie friendly. I'll be able to learn it, I just don't want to have to spend a year to do it.
Thanks...I have a pretty good working knowledge of computers too. I'm actually in school for that. I have a pretty limited knowledge of php and MySQL. That's why I was asking. I just wanted something simple to start with.SMF has been the first and only free forum software that I've used. Now, I know that I have experience in computers and things like that, but it should be pretty easy to pick up on. It's also pretty powerful when it comes down to it.
I'm not really all that into editing forums, but I used SMF. I found it flexible and easy to use. I found it quite easy to edit and there was a lot of help on hand.
I will always use this forum probably ...
