Besides for Fusetalk which is way overpriced.  And know of Ray Camden's Galleon forum, I am just wondering if there are any commercial current and feature rich coldfusion forum/message board programs out there?

Do not choose any One forum from the list Brijesh Gave, I had tried each and every one, but they lack in some things!

If you are using Shared hosting, you may end upwith some tags and functions restrictions which are heavily used in these forums!

From the list brijesh provided, if you still want to try try! the one


this is quite better than others, or i will suggest you build ur own own or try this one, this is much better!

http://www.adersoftware.com/index.cfm?page=cfbb [Free for Non Profit]

http://www.cfcode.com/index.cfm/fuse/forumdetails.htm [Paid] but the best till now, Easycfm.com website uses this forum software

i have one which is build using CF 4.5 and is compatbile with all versions and it runs perfectly, if u want one, i will fwd you

Well this is what I was afraid of, all this links are items I have seen before.  I didn't bother to include them because I don't believe any of them are even supported anymore.  Most don't even have working sites :)   and the last update is 2007.  I guess I was hoping for a vbulletin type of product, but I am not paying $5000 for a license of fusetalk which is just crazy.

The CFCODE website again doesn't look like its been updated since 2000 and doesn't even support mysql or mssql without major modifications.  It was built for Access.

The active projects there are Galleon forum and cf4em -> http://cf4em.com/

You can also try http://www.avectra.com/ and there is a CF component which you can use with it.. http://cfxweb.riaforge.org/, this is also active project.

We presently use fusetalk at our company and it is good, but like you said over-priced.

@myselfrandhawa, sorry about that, I got confused with CFMBB, there is a difference of 'M', CFMBB is based out of phpbb project...

Yep! Great you Caught,

@author, If you are looking a Product like Vbulletin, You must not opt for CF then

Choose from PHP source or ASP>net, if you are a CF Passionate, then just cffrm is the best and it can be modified to work

Choice is urs after all!
