Any forums that host web pages like Zetaboards?

Iam currently using Zetaboards, I love the way it has a website builder which just displays HTML under the forum header, unfortunately it has many other downsides like "topic reply email notification" (which most people like me rely heavily on) is not free and when you pay $7.99 mth for it its not like all other forums where you can check the box and/or auto subscribe to all topics via your options... it has a crap method of having to click a box right at the bottom of every topic you post in which opens a new window and you choose 'email' or 'pm' (you pay $7.99 just for that???) - because of this and few other things I want to move to a new forum, I specificly need one like Zetaboards that can host pages of HTML within and can be manipulated to appear as a website with a forum within (and one of these pages can be set as home/landing page)

see my forum: www.dslbuddy.net

I have pages iam currently working on I would like to carry over with the few i already have.
I need the email notification thingy like it works on all other forums with auto-sub and check-box underneath reply box

im aware I cant import my current forum and thats fine, I will start fresh...

any help would be great and thanks in advance

Hi,

Good news, several forum software are doing this: vBulletin, FusionBB, SMF, or, more exotic alternatives like Joomla or Drupal.

Hi,

Were you able to install it correctly? I mean, are you able to display the forum and the administration panel?

SMF forums dont have webpages etc by default

Hi,

I think you should have a look to the SMF SimplePortal plugin, that allows you additing HTML, PHP and custom BBC pages to your SMF-powered website.

It's Bulletin Board Code (also known as BBCode). You have more details on SMF Wiki.
