Best Forums?

    I really had no idea where to post this but I figured this is the best place.

    I am looking to add some forums to a website of mine and intergrate them into the theme so it doesn't look completely different. So I wanted to get some opinions on which forums are the best around right now.
    SEMrush
    PHPBB, SMF, IPB, vB, etc?

    Thanks

    Go for vBulletin for commercial. phpBB if you are going for free. SMF also not bad for free stuff.

    vB 3.8.5 is the best one, somehow, I don't like vB version 4.0.
    I've been using so far invision power board, phpBB, SMF, vBulletin ...and vBulletin is 100% superior than any other.

    vBulletin is still my favorite. I just had a SMF forum hacked and taken over, I'm pretty reluctant to ever use it again. I don't really like free forums because they are the most targeted ones.

    vBulletin is the best, but it's not free! Both phpBB and SMF are good alternatives!
