ProBoards

This veteran free message board provider is an excellent place to obtain a forum. You can add a ProBoards message board to your site within minutes, and you needn’t be a technical whiz kid either. It’s free, mobile-ready and remotely hosted.

For a free service, ProBoards offers an impressive number of features, including no limit on the size, scope or traffic on your forum. This means you can attract as many members as you wish - without restriction. The provider includes easy to use administration tools so you can block members, edit posts, specify moderators or members with privileges, and perform customisation on your board.

Various customisation options are available and allow you to match the look and feel of your existing website pages. This includes changing colours, the layout, the text, and adding images. There’s also a free, easy-to-remember sub-domain (yourforum.proboards.com) on offer.

Some notable features include: members can embed YouTube videos, photographs, documents, sounds and more into your forum pages, adding an extra layer of interactivity. If you need assistance, free support is available. Just sent in a support request via e-mail or head to the community message boards for free help from members.

A mobile app is available (Android and iOS) that lets you keep updated with forum tasks when you’re on the move.

ProBoards is ideal for sports clubs, personal sites, hobby sites, and lots more. The only limit is your imagination!
