    My name is tracy and i run parents2parents.co.uk and i wanted to add a forum to my site. I did this using phpbb but i have had nothing but trouble especially form other companies saying i am sending them messages, so i have had to delete it all and start over.
    I need the most basic forum going one i can keep an eye on myself and i am not sure where to start.
    any advice would be most appreciated.

    Hey Tracy, Welcome to LinuxForum! :)

    I'm sure we could help you with your matter. If you're looking for a free forum software i would suggest you to try out MyBB. It has a simple interface, has lots of professional themes and it's easy to configure and setup.

    I personally Love borth MyBB and phpBB. I'm more used to working with phpBB and it's MOD.'s. If you're members have been getting their mails a lot, make sure you configure your MOD.'s or mass email feature.

    MyBB is a great alternative, but it all comes down to personal preference!
