    I know vbulletin is king but it's not an option as of yet. I made a new forum a couple days ago and was wondering if there's any decent portals I could easily install and look like my forums? Also, what good mods there are that actually work? I haven't ran a forum since like 05

    I've installed some of the small ones but haven't attempted any of the bigger ones.

    Instructions are all pretty straight forward, if even you have shit all experience. The number of forums run by idiots proves how easy it is to get going ;)

    Anyone here use cash mods? That seems fun to use, if users collect enough cash, they can buy things such as avatar or whatever.

    I've used PHPBB on an active forum since 2004. We use a portal as well, let me see if I can find the name of it.

    I use PHPBB2 and MX systems portal on a few of my sites. Both are heavily customized.
