hi everyone,

does anyone know where i can get hold of a decent commercial forum. i have a client who wants a forum incorporating into their website and i've never used one before. 

I've heard invision power board is good.  Any suggestions?

Cheers!

Try this one: http://www.phpbb.com/

It is open source but widely used

I wouldnt use phpbb! Your client will have to update their forum every week/month as phpbb is full of holes. I'd suggest you go for SMF, whcih we use here, if you want to use a free forum. If you want commercial forum go for Vbulletin rather than IPB.

There are so many much safer PHP based forums than phpBB, sorry it the worse example of PHP coding I have seen, fudforum is one of the better coded ones. There maybe be others, I just have never looked at them.
