Alex S. wrote to us and and recommended that everyone take a look at MyBB, a Web forum application.
I noticed MyBB isn't on your CMS Focus list. I would recommend you looking into it as it is an amazing system. It even just went open source recently.
But, don't take my word for it KDE is now using it them selves. It's new compared to SMF and phpBB but it's already competing with the best (including IPB and vB).
I'm not a developer or anything. Just recommend this amazing forum system with a bright future.
While I make no promises on getting MyBB into CMS Focus, I do think it is time to take a new look at SMF, phpBB, vB, and the new comers. Perhaps in a couple days we'll see if it is time for another forum application to knock SMF off the top 30 CMS list. May the best forum software win...
