What is FUDforum?

FUDforum's official logo.

FUDforum (Fast Uncompromising Discussion Forum) is a free and open source web discussion forum released under the GPL (version 2) license that is written in PHP and can be used on virtually any operating system. FUDforum combines an extensive feature set while maintaining the ability to generate forum web pages extremely fast. The forum includes i18n and templating support allowing for a complete customization of its output as well as a very capable group based permission system. FUDforum can also act as a Mailing List Manager, USENET newsreader and even an XML Feed Aggregator. This will allow you to build an instant community and consolidate all your messages into a single system.

One of the most significant FUDforum features is the ease of use, which begins right with the installation process where a user is guided through a 5 step install wizard. The entire installation process, even for novice users, may literally take less then a minute from the point of installation to the point a user has a working web forum. Unlike installation of similar software, the user does not need to deal with multiple files, all of the forum's data is stored in a single file, the install script. The installation script itself is written in PHP so no additional software is required to complete the installation.

The upgrade process is even easier. After downloading the upgrade script, the user is only required to run the script via their browser, the upgrade script will take care of the rest.

Why should I use it?

Well, all websites should have a forum, right? Those that don't are missing out big time, and they probably don't even know it. If you do decide to install a forum, we would like you to at least evaluate FUDforum for the following reasons:

  • It is free and won't cost you a cent.
  • It will only take a couple of minutes of your time to get it up and running.
  • FUDforum is an extremely capable forum and offers some unique features not found in other forums.
  • It is one of the most (if not the most) secure forum out there.
  • It's easy to extend and integrate into your site.

Try it today, you won't regret it!
