    What Kind of Software Is Used On This Board

    Does anyone know the name of the software that is used on these types of boards? I work for a company based in Montreal with an outside salesforce of over 250 people across Canada and I am currently working on a project in developement to integrate a web-site for our saleforce to share and obtain information. I thought something like this could be developed for our needs. If you have any suggestions on other types of software that is similar I would appreciate the help as I am completely out of date on HTML applications. If you have an idea as to how much software like this would cost for thew lisence I would appreciate that info as well.
    If my wife asks, it was only $20.

    Hardware:
    220 Gal Mostly SPS Reef, 66 gal sump with refuge, 33 gal refugium, Gen-X Mak-5 Return, 3 x IceCap 250 MH, 2 x 110 VHO, Deltec APF600 Skimmer and a Deltec AP-600, Geo 6-18 Calcium Reactor, 2 x Tunze Stream 6100, Profilux Plus II EX Controller.

    It looks to me its a heavily modified version of vBulletin, but there are plenty of portal styel message boards out there.. Just do a google search.

    Colesy is right, vBulletin is the software used here.

    However you can use something free, like PHPBB (http://www.phpbb.com) for most of your needs.

    There are many portal front-end hacks for PHPBB that you can use to give your site a customized look as well..

    If you want an example of phpBB in action, here's my website & board:

    This is a postNuke setup with phpBB for forums.

    Cheers!

    Thanks. I'd love to take credit for it, but I'm a progammer, not an artist. I shelled out some coin for the skin, but considerably less than it would cost for another acro

    Cheers!

    That's one of the reasons I went with postNuke. Many of the skins are free too. I highly recommend either system.

    Cheers!
