  • Do these functions exist

    To do the site I want to do, I need the following features in my forum:

    1) I need a to have a forum where only site admins can post threads, but have the users be able to reply to them.

    2) I need a forum where only certain users can go, without having to user a password (such as adding the user ID to an access list).

    3) Is it open source perl? If so, can I make additions to the code?

    Thanks in advance!

    1) Yes you can do that with vBulletin.

    2) Yes you can do that with vBulletin.

    3) It is written in PHP, which is open-source, but vBulletin itself is not open-source. It is visible-source which is different - you can see (and modify) the source, but you may not redistribute vBulletin or any file in significant part. You can, however, distribute bits of code to help other people make the same modifications, if you wish...see for more on this.
