I have to say I'm rather a fan of Discourse (

a bit of a new spin on the traditional forum, but simple, clean and easy to administer!

Paid: Xenforo is the future! one of the best - Former main Developer of vBulletin.

FluxBB, Laravel 4. I've always thought that if I'll ever need a forum software that would be the thing I'd use, it seems good..

What forum packages do you feel are your favourites?
I have to say: MyBB.

It's free and open-source, and actively developed, by professionals - used by many of the world's message boards, although not as many as phpBB, the classical favourite of free forum packages, here's the things I like about it:

  • Very light
  • Easy-to-use admin CP
  • Simple for users
  • VERY flexible
  • Professional
  • Stable and secure

I am not paid or endorsed by MyBB, I simply run a forum using their package and am satisfied.
What do you believe? State reasons why.
