Hi. I'm looking at private forum type software with which might use to
get feedback from users/customers in, ideally, a variety of ways. In
addition to discussion threads, maybe do polls, questionnaires.
Ultimately it would be cool to house static and/or interactive feature
prototypes here to get at some very general usability issues in the
same environment. Looking for something we could completely white
label, is extensible so open source would be good and cheap with free
being best of course!

Anybody use something like this? We've looked at vBulletin and phpBB
and they seem ok but thought there might be more/better alternatives.

Hi Brian,

I've used the forum software "Vanilla" for a few projects and have
found it pleasant to work with. It's PHP driven, open source and has
a plug-in framework you can use to extend its capabilities.

Could be worth a look to see if it's a fit for your situation.
