Hey I am new here, I'm wanting to set up a forum on the site I am helping to rebuild. I don't mind paying a little bit of money but free is always better. I want a forum that is customizable as far as appearance and that will be secure, intergrate​ with the main site and I'm not really sure what else I'm looking for. Something that is simple/easy to maintain. I do not want to have to switch the forum to a different forum software down the road that just seems like a total headache. I actually already downloaded the stuff for simple machine but I guess that is a little outdated?

My own preference for a free program is SMF (Simple Machines Forum).
Chosen Web Host Quality Shared web hosting and Design
Integrity with Excellence - Free backups through cPanel

I also would suggest phpBB and MyBB. I see many large forums are using them.

I have used SMF for years and love it. But I have only ever had limited users and more for internal use then anything.
