    HTML based BBS Software

    Has anyone got any suggestions regarding the best HTML based Bullitin Board system. I like the Lounge software. Is it custom built or based on a Freely distributable third party solution.

    Um, I was actually looking for a freebie, anything out there you would recomend, Thanks. I am actually looking for something I can just exe (or copy) and wack in to an HTML document and then adjust the presentation, without spending days playing around with it to get it to work or learning any new skills to operate and moderate. **Not lazy just busy with other stuff**

    I think scream has a free limited version of this software.
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wwwthreads.com/download.html> WWWthreads</A>.
    <font color=red>You can download the Demo version of both the PHP and PERL versions of WWWThreads here. These are a somewhat limited version of WWWThreads version 5.1.2 which will allow you to make sure you can setup the program on your system. Although it is somewhat limited it still provides a majority of the features so you can evaluate before purchasing WWWThreads Pro.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Suggest you search on <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.google.com/>Google</A> for 'shareware' and 'freeware' to find sites that may have something suitable for you.

    Otherwise, don't forget: A lot of the time, you get what you pay for.

    >>wack in to an HTML document
    I'm afraid they just don't work that way.
    This board would be far too complex for you. You might try Matt Wrighte's WWWBoard but I think even that would take more effort than you want to expend.

    Try going to <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.reallybig.com/andover.shtml>http://www.reallybig.com/andover.shtml</A>. Go to the CGI Resources and under Web Addons you should find what you are looking for. Really big have a huge amount of helpful resources and alot of it is free. Another idea is to use ezboard. Although you actually only link to their site, your board can be customised to look like it's part of your site. <A target="_blank" HREF=http://ezboard.com>http://ezboard.com</A>
