The info spots would be product info and related stuff that could be different for each individual board, and would basically be the 'theme' of the sub-board and leave the infos empty until added.
Well, there is the possibility to set a different theme for each (sub)forum. Would require a lot of maintenance though when you speak of that much forums.
Is there a maximum number of sub-boards that can be created? If there are 50,000 products could a board be made for each product?
There is no hard limit for the number of forums, however: you'll hit server limits. Everything goes well when you have a couple of hundreds forums, but above, say, 1000 things will definitely slow down. Of course you could try and slam some hardware against it, but I think you better realize that phpBB isn't intended for this. Which leads me to the following:
Looking for a way to display products, but i don't like the look of the comment sections on any of the cms's. Plus was hoping all of the user menus, accounts, frond end administration and profile stuff was already built in and easily customizable on the templates and didn't have to spend a lot of time messing with it. Thanks for any help.
phpBB is forum software. It excels at providing a platform for discussions, but not in what you describe here. I think you're better off with webshop software that give the opportunity for reviews (as comments) and are designed for products in categories, with properties, etc.
