Projects / PunBB


PunBB is a fast and lightweight discussion board. Its primary goal is to be a faster, smaller, and less graphic alternative to otherwise excellent discussion boards like phpBB, Invision Power Board, and vBulletin. It has fewer features than many other discussion boards, but is generally faster and outputs smaller pages.
