Forum software - Orion Pobursky - 2014-07-25

After working on backend projects for a few months now, I've become unsatisfied with the current forum software (Phorum). The tempting system is all kinds of stupid and plugins are a pain to write. I am now looking for a suitable alternative. Rest assured that I will not be switching the system over unless I can do it seamlessly with all data intact. Any suggestions regarding what other major sites use is welcome however I will not choose software that does not support threaded view (so no phpBB) or is not open source.

Before you dive into a new forum software I would prefer adding a working download module (or at least get rid of this crap) to the CMS - I still do not think that the wiki suits our needs.

Ok. That's on the plate too. I seem to be getting more time in Guam than I bargained for and I can only play video games for so long...
