Use the straight-forward and intuitive dashboard to both moderator, and manage your forum. Create new forums, change forum settings, moderate forum posts and users all from the one simple interface.
All our forums incorporate powerful set-and-forget anti-spam to block unwanted commercial posts and spam, so you can focus on more important things. You also have the ability to flag messages as spam to help the system learn to protect your forum better.
Make it simple for your users to post high quality content with our built-in spelling and grammar-checking feature.
Change the appearance of your forum and manage the settings that control how community members interact with your site.
Using a CNAME you can make your forum appear as if it's hosted on your own domain, rather than as part of forums.com - that way your visitors will never feel like they are leaving your site.
Forums.com includes many more features such as in-line moderation, topics subscriptions with e-mail notification, topic tagging, ability for members to ignore other members, RSS feeds, unlimited forums and sub-forums, Facebook integration, themes, and more!
