Summary

Fast, clean, and simple threaded forum that uses a flatfile database. It's designed for people who have small to medium-sized websites and don't want a huge, bloated forum like phpBB.

(This is the stand-alone version of the forum that is used on this site.)

Features:

  • Small and fast. The required files for FlatForum are less than 150k combined.
  • Uses an optimized flatfile database. Unlike most flatfile forums, FlatForum won't bog down when your forum starts to get a lot of posts, because it doesn't load the entire database for each page view.
  • Easy to customize. You don't have to muck through the forum script to change the appearance.
  • Autolinking that works (all URLs and email addresses).
  • Identical appearance in IE, Mozilla, Firefox, Opera, and Netscape.
  • Optional word filters (censors).
  • Advanced spambot protection without requiring user registration or captchas.
  • Free :)
