One of the fun things about building websites is the challenge of learning new software and website tools. This week I became intimately aware of the phpBB forum or bulletin board software by doing three installs on three separate websites. Forums are a great way to cultivate relationships and interact with like-minded souls. Many times when I am searching for a solution to a specific problem in Google the answer will be found on a forum. We did a lot of research and found phpBB to be the leader of bulletin board software and the most search engine friendly as well. After 3 complete installs and phpBB setups I feel pretty confident that I could do it again. It is especially tricky to customize the themes or templates with unique colors and designs.
