This is Janice, I am leading an eCommerce agency in Dallas, TX. My colleague and I are planning to launched an artist program in our online store. The reason behind launching this feature is to join the artists with other artists to explore their ideas, They could easily display their portfolio in our website & get commission on each sale of their designed product.
Coming to the point now, We are planning to create a forum where they could discuss about the designs, platform problems and support so that we can solve their problems & gather all the artists in one platform. I am looking for the best cms discussion platform, after reading a lot of articles I think phpBB is the best cms for forum. I have found a resourceful guide on how to install phpBB
but i need to know the prerequisites & tips to managing the forum from the start & most probably I need to know how can I skyrocket my platform compatibility.
Any guide from you guys would help me a lot
