panFora

panFora is a full featured, high performance Web-based collaboration tool for discussion forums and file sharing. Using standard web browsers and a multi-framed/windowed approach, it has a desktop application feel familiar to users of desktop email/newsgroup tools. A traditional single-frame web layout is also available as a user preference. Extensive admin features allow forums to be created, customized, colorized, reconfigured and maintained, completely from the web. Other unique features include hierarchical topic structure, announcements by groups, and full but safe HTML formatting support in message posts. A popular high performance open-source embedded database is built-in; no database installation is required by the user, making panFora installation fast and easy.
