    Has anyone tried this new breed of forum yet? (Not really new now)


    For full information on the thought behind Discourse, this is a great blog post - http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/2013/02/civilized-discourse-construction-kit.html and you can find the actual software here http://www.discourse.org/ with a demo in place to test.


    I've not spent much time on it so far, but I did find the posting box to be a bit on the strange side, I haven't decided if I like it or not - when you type the text (on the left hand side) the right hand pane gives you a live preview of what it looks like. I'm going to have a further look into it later today and will probably come back and share what I think. In the meantime, check it out for yourselves [​IMG]

    It's the new look of forums, they are like threaded forums.

    If that's where forums are headed, then I'm disappointed.

    Oh, I know I am so far from them looking like that. But I'm sticking with XF, IPB, or vBulletin (paid software) MyBB, phpBB or SMF (free software). Sorry to say.

    Proboards are always working on improving their software. Discourse is usually posting releases every two weeks or more.

    Well Its like the saying goes you "Pay For what you get" As for free it is what it is Free so dont expect much.. Where Paid you get more benefits with paying for it like you get license removal, 1 on 1 support so if a mod fails or what ever they will help you fix it without you starting over. plus you get good Premium plugins and majority of the time they work. where as free theirs not guarentee they will work.
