    I'm looking at setting up a family forum as the exchange of emails between memebers has gotten a little crazy.
    Is there anything about them I should be aware of ?
    Is there a security hole in the thing?
    Some of the family memebers are elderly so I'm particularly concerned about leaving ourselves open.
    Is it possible to make the forum invisible to non users?
    Advice and experiences welcome here :)
    I know there are many, this was the first I found and it looks cute.

    I know SMF has the ability to lock the forum to guests and only allow approved members to signup while phpbb does not have the former features.

    As long as you keep the forum uptodate there isn't much else you can do unless install some mods that increase security. :)
