I believe it was custom made by the owner Philipp Lenssen. The source is not available. In the past there was a request that the forum be open sourced, but at that time it was not possible.

I can remember that there was an open source project that started around the time, to recreate the feel of this forum, but I can't find a link to it :(

I hope that someone is able to find it (Or that Philipp decides to release the source!) as this is the best and easiest to use forum I've come across!

Yep, this forum is homegrown. Emphasis on *grown*... it was tweaked and adjusted over many years based on changing needs, starting out as a way to accompany Blogspot's FTP export system, and later on integratng with posts. This is also the reason that I didn't release it as open source so far, because it doesn't quite meet the requirements I would have for a neatly maintainable app. There's also quite a bit of management done directly in MySQL without a proper admin interface. Of course, I'd be happy to share specific details or code bits where needed?

[put at-character here]Philipp Lenssen thanks a lot for your comment. I should say that this blog+forum is simply the best, it is just so so simple and nice.

This thread is locked as it's old... but you can create a new thread in the forum.
