Free Forum Scripts
A forum is essentially a
website composed of a number of
member-written threads. Each thread
entails a discussion or conversation
in the form of a series of
member-written posts. These threads
remain saved on the forum website
for future reading indefinitely or
until deletion by a moderator.
However, forum software can be
considerably more advanced.
The best free forum scripts
allow more than one forum to be
created. These forums are containers
for threads started by the
community. Depending on the
permissions of community members as
defined by the board's
administrator, they can post replies
to existing threads and start new
threads as they wish.
An overview of the best free
