FUDforum (Fast Uncompromising Discussion Forum) – 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.

Features:
– Built-in search engine optimization
– Spell checker
– Templating system
– Full internationalization support via i18n
– Group permission system
– Private messaging
– File attachments
– Pools
– Forum and topic subscriptions
– Tree view
– Full text search
– I-Spy and online status
– BBcode
– Smilies/Emoticons
– Avatars
– Custom tags
– User ranks
– Censor and replacement system
– IP tracking
– Action log
– Message mangling
– User blocking
– Session support
– Mailing list and NNTP integration
– XML aggregation

The application requires:
– Apache Web Server or Microsoft’s Internet Information Services
– PHP versions 5.2 or higher
– a database: IBM DB2, Firebird, MS-SQL, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL or SQLite
