    Hello guys, i am starting my own forum in the forex niche and i cant decide about something and would like your opinion
    about it.
    My question is what would be a better choice, making a forum with a platform like vbulletin, smf and so on... or do use wordpress plugin like simple:press?
    I would really like to read what you think about it.
    Thank you.

    It really depends on what you are going for. In my opinion I would use vbulletin because it is the most widely accepted, and most likely people that will register for a forex forum will have seen, or be members of other forums.

    Just my thoughts, hope this helps

    vBulletin defo if you're going to start a forum.

    But keep in mind, starting a forum and getting members will be a BIG pain in the ass.

    Best of luck.

    I as well would say vBulletin if you're going to have a serious forum use a serious and reliable platform

    Hi kikiriki,
    I'd be interested in participating in your forex forum. We offer a forex platform at our offshore bank. Can you PM me with your details?

    If you will have just a forum, vbulletin, if you gonna build a website, you can use joomla and the plugin Kunena
