Hey guys, i'm looking to build a website for a running group and they asked me if i could put in a forum and maybe a chatroom. I had a quick look on the net and found phpBB and YaBB which seemed to suit my needs (mainly because they are free and also phpBB seems to include a chat service), but the more I look the more i find. I was just wondering if anyone could recommend something and also some tips on maintaining one. Any advice would be helpful, cheers :thumbsup:

I can't recommend phpBB enough, if the standard install isn't good enough, there are stacks of mods available. :thumbsup:

cheers travis, I've been playing around with both phpBB and YaBB they are both pretty cool and easy to configure. But like you i would have to say that phpBB is the stand out, it has a slicker look and has a bit better security. I should have looked at the bottom of this forum for the copyright notice to see what Grinler powered this with, still i might even give Invision Power Board a go. Thanks mate :thumbsup:
