phpBB2 is the successor to the highly
popular phpBB opensource bulletin board system. Re-written from the ground up to
be even more flexible, secure and feature packed than its predecesor. phpBB 2.0
features all that was good about phpBB 1.x; one-click install, multiple language
packs, simple and intuitive user interfaces, support for BBCode and powerful
administration features. It extends this offering complete customisation through
a powerful template system, fulltext based searching, advanced permissions
system, powerful modularised administration controls, multiple database support,
new moderator functions and much more.
phpBB version 2 has been completely re-written since the
first version. Version 2 focuses on a professional-quality modular design, high
security, multiple-language interface, support for a multitude of databases
servers and complete layout customisation, all with a low execution overhead.
phpBB is based on PHP, the fastest growing server-side
scripting language on the web, which results in one of the fastest, feature-rich
bulletin board systems available anywhere.
In addition, phpBB is open-source software so it has no
fees, no subscriptions, and no restrictions on modifications. Couple this with a
thriving and friendly phpBB community and you have a killer solution for
creating communities on your site!
