Brother Osama, why did you choose for the SMF board by the way, it seems limited, but I also got recommended to use it.

Assalaam,
your brother

Wa Alaikum As'salam dear brother mYucesan,

I chose it becasue its fonts and colors and features were matching to what I was looking for.  Plus, it was one among a few that my web hosting company offered, for free, and for a few mouse clicks (literally) that they would have it all setup for me.  I had to go and customize it a bit though.  But other than that, it's almost entirely the same as I installed it.

I hope this helps.  If you have better boards that you can suggest, then feel free to mention them brother.  With this board, I created only one Category and an unlimited amount of posts that can be created for this category.  This is where every member can create their own topics and receive replies and interactions.  I could create more categories, but I chose to lock it into one category only (the one that says "MAIN BOARD (You must register to post)" on it).  It keeps things simple.

Now, please feel free to suggest how you want the board to be like.  I hope this answers your inquiry insha'Alah.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

Thank you brother.

I played around many forum management systems like myBB and SMF, but also several others.
So let's start one by one.

PHPbb

PHPbb is the oldest board around the net, but that never means it is the best. I generally used PHPbb through services which installed it for me, I didn't have much experience of content management systems back then. But later on I started to install it on free webhosting services, later on paid ones, which are much better. But the most hatred of PHPbb is the way modifications are installed. You had to change the .php files to make the modification function, this usually was no problem but then after all my hard work it became nasty between us. Because the modification my whole board received an error code and I had to remove all the codes I had inserted in the .php files or replace them with the originals(or the backup incase of additional mods installed). Sooo, this all took too long and gave me a headache so we're seperated since a while now. And that proves that it is important to make a backup. [demo;u/pw=administrator]

MyBB

I can't remember when, but I think it's when I saw a website made of this board, I liked how it was organised and how it looked(however it had a additional theme) so I decided to try it. It may be another way I met MyBB but it's not important now. MyBB seemed extremely flexible but I noticed it had a limited amount of modications, well, limited, if you compare them with any other well known board on the net. Uploading mods and themes was as simple as uploading them to the server and activating it through the board. Additional changes to some .php files might require for some MyBB modifications but that depends. However, it seemed to me like most PHPbb acquired changes to .php files, I think this is the reason SMF has more modifications for it's board than PHPbb, an it's probably also because PHPbb was programmed in an old method(maybe). At the end, MyBB looked alot like SMF, but SMF had way more extensions. Maybe there are reasons to choose MyBB over SMF but I do not know them. [demo;u:admin/pw:demo123]

Simple Machines Forum

I haven't been working with SMF so much, I had installed it a several times but I didn't actually do anything with it. But after looking around for quality forums I got recommended to SMF, and I see it is also used by this website. When I asked why the person that recommended me likes SMF he said it is customisable and I think he also said it was simple or easy to use, not sure though. I said to him all boards are customisable but I noticed SMF had way more extensions than any other board I know of. But that does not measure the quality of those extensions. The thing I am disappointed with is the messaging system, it only shows the inbox, not the outbox or any other like trash. Whilst you can select to 'save the message to outbox' you can not see the outbox, how odd. But I like where the admin page is put in, it doesn't require you to open a whole new page, nor it prompts you to re-enter the admin password like PHPbb, however this is better for security. I am currently working with SMF, but I still got to figure some things out. [ugot it installed :)]

Invision Power Board

This is a commercial board, so meaning you have to pay for it. Because of this the extensions will probably be limited. I just got to say this is a very powerful forum software, but just hard to find a decent theme for it. But however I do not recommend you to buy this as it's a better use for company's.[demo]

I seem to almost exceed the 4000 characters limit(full post) so imma keep it to this.\

Selamin Aleykum,
Your Brother of Islam

Salam. Isn't in Islam, the wife-to-be must not be force in marriage? Please provide as proof that Aisha (RA) wasn't force and that her consent is OBTAINED. Thanks.  :)
