    I'm going to work on 2 projects:

    1. My universitiy forums
    2. My niche site.


    Ok, the first question is about my schools forums that I'm going to create.
    The main idea is to spread the forum through facebook so I'm looking for a forum where you could use your facebook account to login.

    Second question - for a second forget about the question 1, and tell me if there is any forum where i could require a specific email (xxx at xxx edu) to register?

    Please give me your at least 1 free and paid pick for both questions.

    Ok, now about my niche site!
    It is going to be a site around a broad topic, I'm going to use wordpress as the site cms. Which free and which paid script in your opinion would be the best for the forums?

    Another question about my niche site is if there is not going to be a duplicate content problem, if I would like to put the best posts from my forum (which will be located on the forum subdomain of the main domain) on my wordpress site as articles (the site will be on the main domain)?

    for the first question, I think you can use phpBB or vBulletin, they have some plugins to connect your user registration with facebook
