    Hello fellow BHW'ers!
    I just bought a brand new freebies related domain, got a nice dedicated hosting for it. Now it's time to build the website.
    I'm thinking about having a blog-like website where I(or other posters) could submit freebie posts and a forum.
    I think that the forum will eventually take over the blog by traffic, so it has to be a good, feature reach platform. Something like what BHW forum has would do.
    And I do have some $$ to invest in the software, if I have to.
    What would be your best bet?
    Thanks

    just go with WordPress (CMS) and bbPress (Forum). Best combination for your needs and you dont have to invest any money for those apps. Wordpress is full of great plugins to you will be able to add any additional feature for your website, plus you can customize it easily thanks to thousands of templates. If you want to invest any money in your website better buy some cool templates which can cost around $100.

    Good luck with your project!
