    Smile One author for all these forums?
    I noted in the past that several of my favorite forums (most web forums I've seen, in fact), seem to have a very similar page layout formula....

    How could I tell what CMS they were created with, and if there is a template somewhere that could be easily copied and pasted (with the right permissions if necessary, of course) in order that I could create my own niche forum?

    While I'm asking...does anyone know offhand what CMS was used for Craigslist.com and Reddit.com?

    Thanks in advance!

    This forum runs on vBulletin the most popular forum software. Craigslist.com and Reddit.com are custom programmed sites.

    There isn't a warning specific to newbie links so used the next best thing. You are good to go now.

    I think most forums run on vbulletin although I have seen one or two other programs out there. None of them are as popular as the vbulletin program though and that layout is probably the easiest one to find lots of information on for troubleshooting and the like.
