    Question Seeking CF Webboard software


    Hello, does anyone know of an open-source Cold Fusion webboard software package? Something along the lines of YaBBSE? (or a variant such as what is used here and at EZboard etc)

    Thank ya!

    The best free one is FB open forums:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/fbopenforums/

    But honestly its not as good as the PHP freeware forums. There are some great forums for CF but they cost money unfortunately. Still, the FB open forums works pretty well for most uses.

    Not for free. Pretty much your options are to use that one, buy one (FuseTalk for example, which powers super-huge forums like AnandTech and Macromedia), or create your own.

    google for the coldfusion port of PHorum. Phorum is sort of a low-grade PHP/MySQL based board, but there is a CF/MySQL or CF/MSAccess port out there on the web (I've used it in the past, just don't have the link handy).
