After dealing with the frustration of having my phpBB board hacked by a worm, I decided it was time to create my own forum system. This forum was created originally for PaperDemon.com but has come in handy for other projects. It also integrates with the art gallery and Oekaki ShiPainter.
PHP, MySQL, Smarty Templates, HTML, CSS, UTF-8, CKEditor
