I checked out the adv forums for drupal but it is lacking in many ways. I am wondering what is the best bridge to use that is not just a iframe on a webpage. If you have one that is nice to use please post link to it. I would really like better forums then drupals.

The bridges end up being more hassles than they are worth. You get two separate admin interfaces, and the interaction between them is minimal at best. I used to use a phpbb drupal bridge, and eventually switched to a Drupal only solution, using the advanced forum module and a bunch of other forum enhancements. The result can be seen here:

I will soon be leaving the Drupal forums permanently. To understand why, please see this thread.

Whether bridges are more hassle depends on the forum, really. If you have a huge forum with thousands of daily posts, trying to moderate that with Drupal's limited tools will send you screaming for a bridge. For smaller forums, though, bridges are definitely not worth the hassle.

BTW, that bell can be changed to something more Japanese... ;)

Hi Nipper, but currently are you using a bridge or just managing a forum alone?
