    A client of mine wants to add a message board to there Web site, and I was curious to as to which route you think I should take. I'd like to use something I can easily customize with css.

    The site is for a band, and the board will get anywhere from 50-500 members.

    The host they use offers MySql and some other stuff that I don't know much about.

    What do you use, or what have you built before?

    Should I just go with phpbb?

    css isn't that good for a user friendly website (i might be talking out of my ass.. but this is what i remember from using it acouple years ago).. there are a lot of different resolution sizes and css has to be tailored to a certain resolution.

    css is fine....browsers have changed from a couple years ago...

    phpbb is a good messageboard for free, simple uses...

    it's a bit of a pain to customize..but once you dig into it and start understanding the template files...you can get it to look exactly the way you want...

    i tweaked the shit outta phpbb for this site


    there's like 3 main template files to edit if you wanna alter the table structure...but you can control the colors via the admin...and replace all the icons easily...
