FusionBB is more than "just another forum". It's a powerful new online community system bringing together your community with posts and pictures. Our key feature is our very flexible permissions sytstem. If desired features and functionality can be micro managed. FusionBB also includes MyPaymentPal, a payment acceptance interface via PayPal, which allows users to pay a fee and gain access to additional usergroups (thus gaining features or abilities with payment). In addition FusionBB also gives you an easy to use gallery, post moderation, easy ad integration and more.

More info may be available in the Docs-Wiki
