I’m considering replacing my newsgroups with web-based forums, but every forum package I’ve tried suffers from annoying limitations.
The most common problem I’m finding is that they scatter
font tags all over the place instead of relying on a global style sheet – and those that do use a style sheet still hard-code colors and background images in table cells and other elements. This makes it a real pain to customize, not to mention upgrade in the future.
One limitation of my own is that I code in ASP rather than PHP, and since I must be able to understand the code it has to be written using ASP (or ASP.NET). It also has to use MS SQL Server on the backend.
So…can anyone recommend a web-based forum package that meets my needs?
