So, yeah. What script does this website use for its forum? Is it custom-built?

If it’s custom built, then can you recommend any simple forum scripts that I can use?

As far as I know it’s a custom build RoR forum. But I don’t know that much.

phpBB seems to be the most popular forum package out there.

Hi,

thanks for the reply; unfortunately, PHPBB and MyBB don’t like me. PHPBB doesn’t log me in and MyBB has 404’s scattered in the admin area.

I’m after something that just displays threads, and not forum categories: something lightweight and simple.

So far, I’m uploading bbPress to mah website, but I don’t know what’s it what I’m looking for.

It’s very lightweight and simple…

Give it a whirl and let us know what you think ;)

http://bbpress.org/ IMHO is the best forum so far, so minimalistic and elegant and is from Automattic!
