Introduction to DeluxeBB free open source bulletin board software

DeluxeBB is a powerful open source bulletin board, which helps you create your own web communities in less than 10 minutes.

The board is written completely in PHP and uses a MySQL database to store its content.
All pages are optimized for speed and security. We believe is not necessary to overload the software with features like many other forum providers, we always keep the speed, security and easy handling as our primary objectives.

Although we do provide our community members with a specific forum for feature requests and user created mods and add-ons.
