Projects / Freech


Freech is a fast and mature discussion forum without useless bells and whistles. Freech may be integrated into your own Web site or used through an API. Freech uses a threaded layout to remove some of the restrictions of flat forums. The development follows the design of the popular newsticker, "Heise Online", while maintaining performance and stability. UTF-8 is fully supported.
