    phpBB3, SMF is good but it's also imho more vulnerable for spambots and security attacks.

    bump. anyone else have any input? Is SMF really more prone to security attacks? So far I like the look of the SMF forums much more than the others I have seen.

    PhpBB3 is the way to go. It is free and highly customizable. Make sure you download and install the MODs plugin. If you want to look at a new installed phpBB3 forum in action, I run the forum fantasticforum2. If you have any questions about it or installing it, PM me, I can help.

    MYBB is the best free forum software, in my view.

    is there any easy way to get adsense onto the forum pages? google brings up lots of posts from 2007ish and i'm sure things have changed.
