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

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.
You can help the HubPages community highlight top quality content by ranking this answer up or down.
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.
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.
