I wanna setup a portal for providing support for my clients.. i wanna setup a forum for that.. just stuck between
I wanna cut my cost as much as possible. its going to be a private forum..
1. lots Members and group membership permission options..
2. Nice UI
3. rating system
5. smooth and ajax basic UI (basic ajax will do)
6. strong security and spam protection
7. good availability of addons/mods
vB will be my last option considering its too costly and resource intensive..
