CMS Stands for Content Management Software and it can be referred to sites like Joomla, Mambo, WordPress Blogs, and Forum softwares. Forum softwares are harder to manage and they are more dynamic. There are dozens of free forum softwares out there such as MyBB, YaBB, SMF, phpBB, and more. And today I will tell you about which I favor most.
I’ve used YaBB which stands for Yet Another Bulletin Board and it is pretty good. Easy admin management but bad in themes and modifications. I’ve used phpBB as well, it has a lot more skins and a lot more modifications than YaBB. But it’s easier for hackers to penetrate and shut down the forum. And thirdly, I’ve used SMF which stands for Simple Machine Forum. It has a lot of skins and it has a lot of modifications. Mods are also easier to install and themes are much easier to install than the rest.
If you want to try out a forum and see what it’s like, get SMF and try it out, you won’t regret the experience because I’ve used it for over 8 months and I’ve enjoyed it a lot. This was just a little tip and opinion from my experience with forum management.
