Threaded forum software

Anybody knows the software for this THREADED FORUM?

I found this Threaded Forum:

http://www.behavior.net/forums/ericksonian/1997/

It is not active now, but it looked like this when it was.

I need to know the software used in this forum...

There's not much to go by from the source-code....it might have been done by hand for the most part. However there are some traces of a commercial product. For example I found this logo in their images folder, which suggests the forum portion may have been something called JJT BBS.

You linked to one of the archived pages. The active forums (which are not really active), look like they use a standard forum software package. According to the footer the software is "vBulletinĀ® Version 3.7.3"

Not the active forum. I am talking about the Threaded forum, which is now inactive...

I spent a stupid amount of time on this and come to the same conclusion as samsara. Though I might also suggest it was "Multi-Board" based on where some of those images turn up.

It looks similar to what boardhost.com uses.

Hmm. It looks like a pure HTML based forum style. Kind of like you see with the thread view of any number of mailing list archives. But I'm not sure if anyone makes forum software like that anymore.

The closest I can think of would be my little forum which is sort of a "modern" version of this style.

thanx, but I need to use it in Arabic language, and this 'my little forum' seems to have a problem with Arabic... or doesnt it?

Looks kinda like WWWBoard which came out 10+ years ago, but is still seen occasionally in the wild.

It also looks very much like the interface for this Jane Austen forum.

musayyeb: Well, it looks like "my little forum" has/had a Hebrew localization in the past. That probably is a good place to start. You could use that as a template for a right-to-left theme as well as how to localize.
