My bookmarks of free PHP forum scripts

So , my next need , and my work is focussed towards collecting some of the quality PHP forum scripts available on the net , for free . My brother wants a script , that could perform a functionality like the Yahoo answers , but doesnt want users to fill in a long Signup form , and enter the forums .

He wants it to be crisp and sharp , asking only the necessary information .

So , here i go . And hey , i dont order them in any order . They just come in an unknown order . :D . ( or maybe something orders them ) .

  1. PHP Bulletin Board - http://www.phpbb.com/
  2. Simple Machines Forum - http://www.simplemachines.org/
  3. Mini Bulletin Board - http://www.minibb.net/ ( Both free and paid are available )
  4. Vanilla - http://getvanilla.com/ 
  5. PuNBB - http://www.punbb.org/
  6. bbPress - http://bbpress.org/ ( From creators of Wordpress )
  7. MyBB - http://www.mybboard.com/
  8. Phorum - http://www.phorum.org/
  9. UseBB - http://www.usebb.net/
  10. IceBB - http://www.icebb.net
  11. QuickSilver Forum - http://www.quicksilverforums.com/
  12. Unclassified newsBoard - http://newsboard.unclassified.de/
  13. Viscacha - http://www.viscacha.org/
  14. K4bb - http://www.flyingwithfire.com/k4/index.php

Those are the forums , i could bookmark for now . More will be added , and your contributions are most welcome , with comments as the medium to tell me .

And yet , one more thing is what i have to share , is that YaBB is another one of the exceptional forums , but the thing is , it is written and runs on Perl , rather than PhP  . So , have time ? consider visiting ,

YaBB - http://www.yabbforum.com/
