I am trying to build a community (a simple discussion forum). Just starting out and never done this before, so please be patient with me ! I have some programming experience, but thats from the days of structured programming COBOL etc.
Is PHPBB easy to customise for a simple discussion forum?
When it comes to customising I guess it depends what you want to do. You can certainly change the logo and colours pretty easily or install a whole new style. Extra features can be added with extensions which are just uploaded and activated. No coding needed.
Would it be possible to make it an invite only forum?
Yes - you set up a Q&A for registration with the question "What is the secret code?" (or something similar) and then give the code to those you want to be members.
