FluxBB is a free open source forum application designed to be fast, light and user friendly. FluxBB's code, written in PHP, has a proven track record of stability and security. FluxBB is being actively developed.
FluxBB is a forums platform that is made to run very efficiently and reliably. It has been around since about 2007 and while it doesn’t have some of the more advanced features that other platforms can offer, it is still an excellent option for many people. This system is developed by the same people as PunBB and in many ways is that platform’s replacement (though it is still officially available). It is coded using PHP and MySQL databases, which is the standard for forums and most other web platforms today.
This is a platform that is recommended for people who want to have a mid-sized community, which means between 1000 and 10,000 members with up to 150,000 posts. Of course, it can easily support smaller communities as well. If your community grows beyond that point, however, it can start to get bogged down. For most people looking to start a new online community, this is an excellent option to consider.
