Discussion Board




where: discussion board software download?

Company I'm working for is looking for intranet discussion board with ability to attach files. We need it for internal  announcements. 

I know, that there are some discussion boards available for free, so we don't want to start from scratch.

Could you point me in a right direction: PHP, ASP, ASPX, Linux, Windows  - everything will do.

PHP / MySQL version of a forum similar to Joel's:

Thank you a lot, Sir!

Its good, its simple, but we need to attach files and just can't be bothered doing any coding of our own.

We need something like vBulletin ( http://www.vbulletin.com/ ), for, say, nothing. :-)

That would be PHPBB then:

I've always liked WebWiz Forum:  http://www.webwizguide.info/web_wiz_forums/default.asp

phpbb doesn't include the ability to attach files.

At least, the default installation doesn't include that ability.

But you can install a hack that will make it work, and you can find that hack here:

WebWi allows file attachments.  And avatars.  And Private messaging.  It's a HUGE enabler of screwing around at work.  ;)

Maybe you should consider a Wiki?

We should have been using Outlook Exchange Server - we have a full version of MS Office installed on every machine anyway, but our management doesn't want to spend a dime.

Eric, thanks for "Wiki" clue, sounds interesting - I have to investigate it a bit further.

Norrick,

the feature will be mainly used by board of directors for public announcements. I'm investigating possibility of Dilbert avatars usage now. ;-)
