ASP.NET Forum Application / source code

Hi Experts

I know this question has been asked before but the responses seenm ou of date so forgive me for asking again.

I'm after an ASP.net forum, written in VB. Happy to pay but not $1000's.  - I only want a simple one.

I've googled but can't find anything suitable / cheap enough.

Does anyone have any ideas.

In order to create a new forum application, you'll have to consider it a whole new application - new DB, new design, implementation, testing etc - which will take you a lot of time.

If you need to move fast take a look at this link: http://csharp-source.net/open-source/forum-software 

 You can find free .net forums already written and ready for use. I am sure that there are other free options besides the ones in the link I provided and maybe you can use forums written in other languages .. like PHP (there are a lot of php forums).


here is an open source forum written in .NET

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

HI Again

Just keep in mind that what Dhaest suggested in this link
http://www.codetoad.com/asp.net_forum.asp

is also ITCN Asp.Net Forum 2004 that is working only on .NET 1.1

Thanks I've seen these, and they are either 1.1 and / or c#. I'm looking for asp.net 2.0 and VB. Sorry I should have mentioned the version in my question.

Elimesika - have you tried itcn forum?

HI

Not by myself, but know that it is one of the best, and considering your requirements , you can use the Enterprise version as-is which costs only 39$ , very attractive

You can play with the demo at http://forum.itcn.com/forum.aspx an see it working.
