Features include: posting, replying, private messages, polls, username/ip banning, strong encryption for storing passwords, user rankings, very advanced access control for private forums, full templating, simple yet robust translation system and much more.

I acquired ScriptDorks in 2012 which grew into a popular software development company. Over the years better software became available and all ScriptDorks' projects, such as Exitlinks and Alpha-Bids are now open source. I now add reviews on various third party software scripts I come across through my work at Thexyz.

    This is by far the best discussion board I have ever seen. It is very efficenint, supports numerous modifications including “Fast Reply”, in which you do not have to exit the thread view to make a post. Considering it’s great support and user-friendlness, I think that the next version of phpBB (phpBB 2.2) shall be the best one yet! It supports an UNLIMITED amount of ranks for users on the board, so as your forum grows, the number of ranks can grow with it. I give this TEN THUMBS UP. May it live!

    I must say, after using many Forum/BBS scripts the past 4 years phpBB is by far the best so far. What makes it so great in my opinion is the speed and ease of installation. All you need is a mySQL database created then you run the install. It doesn’e get any easier. I have been using phpBB for a few months now and was in with the beta and the support I’ve received from the Developer (theFinn) has been nothing short of OUTSTANDING. My visitors (who can be harsh at times about the boards I’ve used) have had nothing but great things to say. This is a must Forum script for the Pro webmaster or for someone just starting out. UBB LOOK OUT, here come phpBB! 🙂 Great job to all who made it happen!!!!!
