Beehive is an online forum/message board system with several powerful features. Beehive is an open-source project for creating a high-configurable frame-based discussion forum. Almost every aspect of Beehive is customisable to some degree, from the forum's name right down to how many posts per page each user wants to see, and with everything inbetween, including guest accounts, user profile catagories, your start page, your top frame, user's signatures, language packs, forum styles and emoticon sets - and if you don't like those that come as standard, it's easy to create add your own!
Beehive is a forums software that also has elements of a content management system, which makes it somewhat unique. It is written with PHP and allows you to create content, and then have discussions about it quite well. It has a lot of options for customization and is coded nicely so that it can run well on shared hosting solutions. This platform is mostly recommended for smaller communities or sites where content may get a few dozen comments on a post at most.
It is free to use, and has all the traditional functionalities of most forums, plus some additional options. It does rely heavily on frames, which some people will like and others won’t. Frames really are an outdated technology though, so it is hard to see that as any type of advantage. If you like the idea of interacting with readers and having user contributed content on your site, this is a good platform to consider.
