Is AnyBoard the best?
Many customers think so, and
we think so too. AnyBoard is by far the most advanced. No other boards
come close to AnyBoard's capabilities and ease of use. AnyBoard's
amazing versatility is a big part of why our customers consider it the
best program available and an integral part of their online communities.
One of AnyBoard's
capability is its capability to be customized to fit your web
site's design. Most message boards has a rather fixed and rigid look
& feel. AnyBoard allows you to change the whole look & feel
via the admin panel by setting different configuration parameters. Users
have even configured to make it look like other boards such as wwwboard
or ubb, under the hood, they still get all the powerful stuff found
in no other bbs.
You can configure AnyBoard in
any way you want: a threaded board, a non-threaded board, a hybrid,
a guest book, with frame interface or without, etc; you can list the
message topics in sort by any fields, such as first post time, last
post time, avarage post time, subject, message number, etc; and you
can control the board in any way you want: from optional to required
registration, e-mail validation, require cookies enabled, require HTTP
authentication, etc; there are a lot more. Almost any functional
or esthetic feature you can imagine is already a part of AnyBoard.
Most important of all, AnyBoard
is designed be scalable, robust and secure. AnyBoard is built to handle
heavy load situations. Many AnyBoard forums have over 15,000 active
(threaded) messages and one sees almost no performance degradation.
AnyBoard is designed to be robust, it correctly handles concurrent users
and will never corrupt data. AnyBoard is secure,
because we understand Internet security and build in security
checks at all levels.
We don't expect any other board
to be able to match AnyBoard in the near future, if ever. However, AnyBoard
could not reach its status today without the input from users like you.
Often times, a customer brings up a new idea, and our reaction is: "how
could we have missed such an interesting feature?" A lot of the new
functions, or new ways to use existing ones, are suggested and
inspired by users. AnyBoard debuted only a couple of years ago, and
its capabilities are already unmatched, and they are certainly unsurpassed.
We should be all proud of this. AnyBoard is better because our users
ask for more, and our users get what they want, usually very fast.
As a new user, you will probably
find AnyBoard provides elegant solutions to your needs. As a current
user, you may find that AnyBoard has added new functions you wanted
since your last visit to this page.
You Always Wanted to Know About Bulletin Boards
We invite you to look at some AnyBoards.
AnyBoard easy to install?
It is and we are not exaggerating!
The reason is simple: first, AnyBoard consists of a single perl
script; secondly, there are only two places you need to change in the
script: the path to perl and the path to a configuration directory you
choose. It can't be easier than that! One or two more will allow
you to take advantage of several e-mail functions in AnyBoard.
AnyBoard easy to administer?
Yes. Because everything is done
through the admin
panel using the browser.
your board do this?
board, different configuration
AnyBoard has over 300 independent
parameters, so the number of different configurations is at least 2^300
We have adjusted a few parameters
on style/presentation, and configure the Support forum in different
here to have a look.
Most other boards can be reduced
to a special case of AnyBoard (and with much fewer features). AnyBoard
has 5 configuration parameters that define the basic layout of the messages
For example, by setting the depth
of links to 1, inline to true, thread inline to false, you get the basic
layout of some other board. This is just one example of the power of AnyBoard's
- Depth of links on main page
(thread display level)
- Whether to put all follow-ups
of a message in a single file (inlining)
- Whether to indent the inlined
- Whether to use unordered
list (like wwwboard) or configurable spacers(such as spaces or blank
images) for thread indentation.
- Whether to column justify
fields in the message links.
Some boards use various small
icons, in AnyBoard, every fixed label (such as Re:, Posted by,...) can
be set to an icon, and there are over 40 such labels.
