Reviews SMF...

I have been using SMF for years now through fantastico... all i have ever gotten are errors because it is never updated. Well this is fixed with YOUR services!

Great software
by a Guest - Kimojuno - August 21, 2009, 2:12 pm
I have used SMF for years and have never been disappointed by their service nor their product. They offer excellent support and a great deal of tested and approved board themes and modifications. Each theme and modification is thoroughly tested and approved before showing up on their site. This helps prevent malicious authors from hurting users. Overall, the best forum software I have found. :)

Best of all forums

I have been using SMF for five years and have got hundred thousands of members with thousands of content. It didn't cause any problem. Smf is the best.

Customizeable and Readable Code
by a Guest - Robert Morris - February 16, 2010, 4:21 am
As a Web Developer and programmer, I wanted something that was customizable without "re-inventing the wheel". SMF is impressively written while being accessible and READABLE to the DIY programmer who wants more from an already amazing Forums package. I look forward to version 2.0 when it comes out of Beta. SMF Rawks!
