An Internet forum is a web application designed to host discussions on topics of common interest to a given community.  Members of the community supply the content, primarily in a question and answer format.

Internet or Web forums are also referred to as message/discussion/bulletin boards, as well as discussion groups/boards/forums.  The terms "forum" and "board" refer to the entire community of members of a particular forum, but are also used in reference to the various sub-categories or sub-forums dealing with a specific topic.  Content consisting of posts or messages within these sub-forums are displayed in chronological order or as threaded discussions.

There are various providers of forum applications; most common among them are: vBulletin, phpBB, bbPress, Simple Machines Forum (SMF), etc.  SMF was chosen for AuditBible, and users can access their on-line You must login to view links.

The survival and success of any forum is dependent upon the participation of its members.  Please visit and participate often, and if you know someone who might benefit from AuditBible, please recommend us to them.
