    Many users of Hallow Demon are Forum administrators also.
    You might have already heard about free forum softwares like phpBB, SMF (simple machines forum), Vanilla forums, Phorum, Simple press etc.. there are a lot to list.

    In fact Hallow Demon uses bbPress as our forum software. It is available as a wordpress pluggin and developers are the same people who develop wordpress.

    The main reasons for selecting bbPress as our forum software are it’s simplicity, and proper integration with buddypress (in which Hallow Demon is build upon) even though its not that feature rich.

    If you are a forum administrator, what is your favourite forum software?.. and what are the reasons for selecting it?

    I really fed up with the similar old layout of all forums. comparing to other forum, Hallow Demon forum look very fresh..
    It may not have rich in functionality .. but ultimately what we need is post and reply… it does the job.. I personally like this layout

    I have tried most of the popular ones and would take MyBB every time – Ease of use, styles & themes a plenty, masses of plug ins. Second choice would be Simple Machines.

    I think when it comes to free phpBB is the best. When it comes to paid Invision Power Board is awesome! vBulletin is overrated.

    I like vbulletin’s complexity, I love PHPBB’s simplicity. Depends what style forum you’re going for.
