DG Opinion

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Joel on Software : One Thread

I like the simplicity of the dg. Although the frames usage is functional, it is also a bit annoying. I prefer the UBB-style DG's. If there were less overhead(Graphics etc.) much like this. UBB would be even nicer to use. Some tests:
Does this dg support HTML? What about paragraph formatting? Auto linking http://www.joel.editthispage.com I do like the email response feature. I am working on a UBB-style discussion group that is completely open-source and runs on Zope. It is based on ZUBB with more features. You can see it in action at ZopeSite.com

It might be a good idea to look at some of the successful collaborative sites like Metafilter, which has succeeded in creating a discussion forum that is very easy to use, loads quickly, and is easy to read.

For another solution take a look at http://www.vbulletin.com

It uses PHP and MySQL.
