Grow your community with NodeBB

A better community platform for the modern web.
NodeBB is next generation forum software. It's powerful, mobile-ready and easy to use.

“When we decided it was time to revamp our community we contemplated several possible solutions. We finally opted for NodeBB, and we couldn’t be happier.

We're using a modern, actively developed forum software. Numbers confirm that our user engagement skyrocketed and there was not a single comment from our users that would say that the old forums were better which, I think, speaks for itself. ”

— Artur Matczak, Software Engineer, Opera Forums
