Silex Bulletin Board

Silex Board or SilexBB (Silex Bulletin Board) is an open source forum software released under the GNU General Public Licence. It is free to download and use. The software uses the template engine Smarty to manage layouts, safe code and display the content. Originally the project was found by Patrick Kleinschmidt (Nox Nebula) to improve his PHP, CSS and JS skills.
