Hello. I am building a new site, and I need some help. I need to install a forum on it, and I don't have the time to design one. Besides why should I when there are hundreds out there? Anyways, the help I need is picking one. I want one that is easy to template, intergrade into a website, is in PHP, uses a MySQL database, and is easy to manage and customize myself. I thought about PHPBB, but I want your opinions. All suggestions welcome, as long as the forum software is free :-D I am broke, so I need the free stuff.

Well, that rules out VBulletin and Invision, so in this case, I'll have to go with PHPBB. Easy templating, lots of mods and supports, and easy integration. However, one thing to keep in mind is the whole list of security bugs that exists within the code. If that doesn't worry you overmuch, then PHPBB is definitely the way to go on this.
Disclaimer: No matter how harsh I may be, I'm always IMO only.

Perhaps PHPBB is the way. I have also found SMF. Any ideas on it? Just throw out what you think is best.
