FUDforum Features

FUDforum is an extremely fast and scalable forum that can fulfill the needs of both small and large forum operators. The software is highly customizable and supports a large feature set. For example, it supports an unlimited number of members, forums, posts, threads and attachments. It can also import XML feeds, USENET posts and E-mail lists and sync forum replies back to those groups and lists.

The easy to use administration control panel allows the administrator to easily configure and control the many features available. The forum also includes an interactive help package, which helps to familiarize users with the full potential of FUDforum.

The software also offers templatable skins with i18n support, a user/group management system, a multi-lingual spell checker, both flat and thread message views, a private messaging system with multi-user forwarding capabilities, polls, file attachments, and much more.
