About FluxBB

FluxBB is a free open source forum application created to be fast and light. Because of that, the developers decided to give up on some of the not so important features, and just provide users with the most essential features. FluxBB v1.2 branch is a fork of PunBB v1.2.17, fixing various issues. After PunBB was sold to a commercial company and the developer who created it announced he would leave the project, the remaining members of the development team decided to fork the project in order to change its direction and gain more control over it.
