Can the forum script phpBB be used as a CMS, or do I need something like Wordpress to integrate it?
I am trying to setup a forum community. I am using bluehost
sort by best latest
No it is just a forum, you could use wordpress, joomla or drupal to integrate. It is a standalone forum though, so you might as well just have it by itself.
You can help the HubPages community highlight top quality content by ranking this answer up or down.
I agree with iAmNameLess, use one of the major CMS systems like Joomla or Wordpress. For some reason, Drupal 7 crashes and times out often, so I do not recommend it. Drupal 6 was better.
It is possible to use any forum system like CMS if you spend time in tweaking it. But to avoid re-inventing the wheel, it's better to use standalone CMS instead.
If you want to use forum as community CMS, Blog and Answers system then try - Vanilla Forum software.
