Catholic Regional Internet Forum

Hi all, I haven’t been on here for a while and my old username didn’t work so I assume there has been some kind of refresh.

I’m looking at starting my own internet forum for Catholics in my local city. I want to keep it local because it would have a different focus to something like CatholicAnswers. The idea is also to create a community that can meet in person and activate events locally, whilst also having a common place to talk at our leisure.

Catholic Answers used to be a vBulletin board (from memory). Does anyone know what architecture is used here now? I once created a vBulletin board but it is now unsupported and would be required to buy an entirely new version to set it up. So I’m just assessing the landscape before I make a decision.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It’s a DIscourse format. THere are many free forum hosts out there
Another CAF member has started one, and there are others out there. BEst wishes in your new endeavor!

Thanks. Do you know who that CAF member is? Maybe I can piggy back or share ideas with them.
