    If you want to have a similar look then i would look into Xenforo with the add-on Article Management System (AMS) or IPS with IP.Community and IP.Pages. But to get the dame look would mean a custom style.

    Is the Xenforo addon free? last time I looked at IP it made you pay per month for the forum software.

    There's a self hosted option where you buy once to get a license.

    You probably only looked at the cloud option.

    Go here https://invisioncommunity.com/buy/self-hosted/ for self hosted the one you are looking for is Pages for articles. The Xenforo one is not free AMS is very extended you can find it here https://xenaddons.com

    The Pages application is actually one of the most powerful apps for Invision Community. It actually allows you to build unlimited databases of whatever you want: databases of guides, databases of news articles, databases of items, etc -- each with their own custom template.

    The other benefit is that it's a first party app, which means it's directly supported and maintained as part of your license.
