Yep. The best solution out there. I would recommend this just for the great and i mean GREAT support they give at http://phpbb.com/community – it can easily beat any commercial product support. It’s got many standard features built in and many mods to extend the usability and that many styles – just makes you believe the saying “the best things in life are free”.
