"Write your own" - are you serious??! phpbb3 is probably the best open source solution. The site is down at the moment, but there is a download link. Unfortunately, this means you can't get hold of the all-important mods and styles. Setup is a cinch and admin is straightforward. Translations in many languages. Immensely moddable - see http://startrekguide.com/ for example.


Those are a little more complex, like I said, something simple such as the Ning boards. I want to host it myself as well, so IF would have been out of the question anyway.


I'm not so fluent in PHP. There's really no other forum out there like the forums used on Ning?
