What discussion Forum System?


#1

Hi guys. Would just like to ask what forum discussion system are you using here? Seems pretty simple and straightforward, and doesn’t show too many posts.

Hi :slight_smile:

The forum software is WWWThreads, well at least that is what it says in the FAQ. :slight_smile:

Ya know, I went over to that linked website a couple of years ago to check it out,and saw that it was a commercial script that I could not afford at the time (though I like the fact that it was written in perl and seemed to have a good “balance” between features and simplicity).

I went back there a couple of weeks ago and saw that the perl version is no longer available and the “new” version (php/MySQL) was now a “free download” that is advertised as being free of any fees… I have not checked out the new version, but it does not appear to be the same code that DH is running.

Hm. I like this simplicity in a forum. It would be too bad if this is commercial.

Hmmm… I think you are right. The WWWThreads being used for the developers own forum doesn’t look much like the WWWThreads being used here.

Sorry, I may not have been clear in my post; the version of wwwthreads that is now available from the people who made this script (or, at least, those that are now using that domain?) is “free” - though their new version is not the same as the one you are seeing here, which is at least 6 years old, and may very well have been “tweaked” a bit by DH over the years. :wink:

Hi zenpcs,

Are you looking for a forum to run for yourself?

Pssh: You can’t improve on perfection. :stuck_out_tongue:

Very little to do with either emus or farmers!

Your perfection doesn’t seem to have a good security record over the years…

Whatever you do, don’t go for phpbb.
