XMB - Forum
« on: March 07, 2021, 12:32:00 PM »

Example hosted in BKH is https://www.daveschultz.com/forum/

Of the free ones, I prefer this one to SMF, by a slight margin. Both are actually very good - but I like the fact your can add a menu item (like a like to another of your sites) in the navbar without hardcoding. The problem with hardcoding is that upgrades overwrite it if the file modified is replaced with new in the upgrade.

A new feature at BKH is the addition of Installatron in your account's Cpanel. This allows you to easily install any of over 50 applications without having to create databases, users, FTP the files to your account on the server and running the setup. It does all of that for you. Additionally, it maintains upgrades for many of those applications.

On Installatron, there are about 10 forums you can install. If you look at the dates of the last version, you will see that most aren't supported anymore. I'd avoid those and stick with either XMB or SMF.

If you want a forum, but just don't want to deal with the installation, configuration, and category/forum structure - I can quickly do any or all of that for you. Plan out your, Category names and descriptions, forums that are under each category (names and Descriptions) and submit a Support Ticket https://www.bigkahunahosting.com/support/ with that information, and I'll give you a quote. That said - give it a try first, we can always delete it if you were to give up and want a pro set it up.

I'm suggesting that you stay away from XMB as the Spam control is weak. I'm changing over the forums referenced above to another.
