    Anyone know which of any free forum software packages allow addition of custom user/registration fields?

    I see that MyBB does, but it's not out of RC yet...

    TIA :)

    I'd really rather just buy another vB license, but don't have the $$ for a fourth one at the moment :) LOL

    Brian, I have had tremendous success with VBs paid subscription. I have an idea for a new forum and I was thinking of getting a free board at first and converting to VB once it starts generating revenue. I have since decided to bite the bullet and get another VB license and implement premium membeships which will offer some extra goodies.

    Have you looked into leasing a VB license?

    I like VBB but consider the community. My community would actually find VBB a bit complicated, phpbb presents an easier interface.

    Hmm, I've never used vBB, but I have used vB. So please tell us how vBB is compliated? :)

    (vBB is NOT vBulletin, infact, vBB is another forum software in itself ;))

    I've been working with phpBB and other forum software converts and their members most of the time find vB's interface easier.

    LOL yes, I have two owned vB licenses and one leased at the moment. I don't have $85 at the moment and the project isn't mine so to speak anyways, so I don't want to put my money into it... I'm also not really sure how busy the site will be, so I don't want to waste any money...

    I love VB myself but I believe the question was for free forum software....

    You can find tons on http://www.hotscripts.com/

    I have tried most of these and nothing really did it for me but there really is some decent script there......

    Try Phorum. It's not like most BB's but it allows custom fields.
