    there are many different scripts, IMO VB is the best which will set you back something like $180, there are many free ones like PhpBB and SMF which will get you on you feet, but eventually you will want to switch to VB if your forum gets busy

    You need to pay for vBulletin, Invision Power Board etc..

    While PHPBB, SMF etc.. are available for free.

    There is some people that say phpbb is better but some that say SMF is better, from what ive heard lately SMF has taken over phpbb in terms of quality of forums, phpbb has been around for a long time and is used by too many people to have effective support, its always getting hacked as temi found out not long ago. SMF has been quite good from what ive seen but id still get the money for VB

    Never Support Warez Scripts, There Is Always Bugs There, And SQL Errors And Stuff.. You Better Buy It From The Main Company.. And About The Layouts There Is Lots Of Site Offering Free Templates For Different Forum Scripts

    Well, SMF is great. But, vBulletin is far better. Its performance and look is totally unique. Its also an impression builder. Some webmasters(like me) never want to join such free scripts coz its always a feeling that this forum was too easy to build and even I can do that while when it comes to vB, they get a little sympathy that this forum's owner has spent a lot of money for this forum and we should make at least a little contribution to the forum.

    So, even I suggest you to get vB. Good luck!
