Web Forum question

| I have seen lot's of forums / community sort of websites that use what seems to be the exact same program(or whatever you wanna call it) for their forum and so I wondered if anybody knew what is was.
e.g.: community.letsencrypt.org

| but ye those two are like the 15th forum i've stumbled upon using that exsact look with exsactly the same features

| Looks like Discourse to me.

| I have a feeling it's this one

| Interesint so this is free all in one web server software?

| Are there many projects like this or is discourse unique in it's aproach?
Is there a term for this type of thing?
(and thanks very mutch for the quick anwser)

They're called 'internet forum software' AFAIK. There are lots of them (vBulettin and bbPress comes to mind immediately) and plenty of them are open source which allows for self-hosting.

| Level1Techs formus are hella nice

| Oh man I used to be a forum nerd years ago.

It's called either forum/bulletin board/message board software. Back in the days phpBB and its forks were probably the most common. Also vBulletin, InvisionFree, Zetaboards, Simple Machines and probably a couple I don't remember.

They kinda died after social media killed off most message boards. Tapatalk and Discourse are kind of the modern incarnations.
