Download phpBB
phpBB is open source flat style forum software written in PHP programming language. It supports most major database systems, enabling smooth and problem-free installation. Once installed, the forum can be set up in minutes and the large customizable features won't take much longer than that to set up.

phpBB has a templating system that keeps it separate from HTML code to make customizing easy. There are different styles in the database to download as well as add-ons such as rank images, avatars and more. The styles have been put through intensive validation processes in order to minimize installation and ensure quality.

Administrators will like the easy to use, modular design panel that lets them spend a fraction of the usual time on admin tasks. Custom profile fields, ranking, smilies and unlimited levels of sub-forums are just some of the features that phpBB provides to make your forum everything you want it to be. Forum admins will also appreciate security features such as permanent and temporary bans, word censors, user logging, warnings, blacklisting and post moderation.

Members will enjoy the abilities of single and multiple posting, opinion polls, instant messaging capability, address books and a searchable member list that can be confined to registered used if desired. Each member can customize the appearance of the forum to their own preferences.

phpBB provides support through a message forum and IRC with international support that's multilingual.
