Powerful script with the best admin interface I have seen, yet it lacks threading and easy inclusion of URLs and images, setup is a horror and the powerful admin GUI eats up a lot of space on the webserver for graphics and HTML templates.

The easiest script I have ever installed. I am only 15 and I got this done in a flash, without opening the CGI file itself.

The linear format is a blessing! You might miss the threads at first, but without them, discussions don't become a big, insane web of links. It's an addictive format! There are users who have been at my board for a year. If it was threaded, with 170-200 messages a day, we'd have to clear the board every single day. But this way, there are discussions that have actually stayed alive for a full year. And you don't gotta click 200 times to read them! Everything about Discus is great! And EASY!

It's got the best installing system I've ever seen.

It basically did everything for me! I was really amazed. It doesn't look like you'd expect, so it might take a little getting used to for your visitors, but they'll get over it!

My biggest concern when I add a resource to my site: Is it stable? It doesn't need to have every feature in the world as long as what is in place works nicely, support is decent, and the user base is sufficient so that upgrades will be forthcoming. This fits the bill in all areas. Setup is easy. I was able to prepare and maintain a user list separately, from my main site, without too much hassle. Message searching is very nice. The threading issue hasn't been a problem.

Discus is good, but not good enough. Threading is one important feature that Discus lacks and the documentation tree on the navigation bar (left) is a disattraction... Scores well in installation and interface is OK, but nothing great or wonderfull.

Well done, guys! The implementation was pleasingly 'sophisticated' and made easy. While I agree the interface could be more contemporary, a little work and you are in the ballpark! Coming from a senior systems analyst, the script is well-written, stable and efficient - a natural choice for us.

This script is extremely easy to install and extremely easy to use, but also very annoying. It consists of more than 140 files in 8 different locations!
