Simple Machines Forum is a long standing forum script written in the popular PHP language which uses a MySQL database to store its content.

Simple Machines Forum, commonly also referred as SMF, is designed to provide all the features needed for a bulletin board while having an absolute minimal impact on the server resources.

It includes many custom templates for a personal and professional design of the message boards, and many extensions to customize its feature set.

The forum also comes with support for many many more other features, putting it on the same level as well known forums scripts as phpBB and Vanilla Forum.

To help developers set it up, SMF comes with an installation wizard and admin panel, along with multi-user account support, l10n, and lots of moderation features.

All in all, Simple Machines Forum is not only a well coded tool, but also a very stable forum package that you can use without having to worry about community support, an unattended codebase, or the lack of extensions and themes.
