This software is available via http://www.simplemachines.org and it's free. They have a Charter Membership available for $49.95 as well, but it's only if you'd like access to first releases (sooner) and extra help on issues and upgrades. You will have to unzip and install it.
Just as a reminder,Â certain files (they are listed) must be chmod'ed to 777. This means that you have to have all the specifies files chmod'ed or the installer will not work, it will just keep going back and forth asking for the username and database information.
Yes it is... It is definitely the nicest and cleanest looking forum I have ever seen, and worked with!! It is fairly easy to work with, if you know php of course. The designers of this went, and still are going to great lengths to help meet our wants with this.
I am sure an update will come soon. They are working hard on making us happier
I am going to run a forum on my site when I put it back up in September.
I will as well. I have installed it for another person and have installed it for myself just a few times so I know how to do it for the most part. Editing the files is what gives me the most troubles because I dont know PHP. Other than that, if you need assistance I will be glad to help.
I wont be home until early September so if you want one before then, CT, hope you can help.
