I'm currently having a need for a good forum software again, and the newly responsive FUDforum 3.1 looks like one of the less bad options, so it is one of the three remaining options.

The feature that may make the decision for me is multi-language support. The community which I want to establish will be equally German and US-American, so the forum should be able to:


  • have an automatic browser language detection
  • support a multi-language title in the header (e.g. "this is the English title", "this is the German title")
  • ... and/or do the same for subforums.
I remember phpBB having been able to provide something like this long ago, but I dislike phpBB for quite a number of reasons.

Can the FUDforum do that? Smile

Yes, look at the "Theme Router" Plugin:

"Direct users to a suitable theme based on their browser language. It also shows a drop down box on the front page so users can switch between different themes. Simply enable it and create a theme for each of the languages you want to support."

Awesome, thank you! Does that also include multi-language subforums?
