OK, I'm trying to get my head around Joomla, and they have an EASY 1 click install forum called Agora. Problem is, it's dog ugly (but today I got Dreamweaver so hopefully will have some help with my CSS editing... trying to learn everything at once here OK? AND the kids are home on holidays still! ) Anyway, Agora. It's ugly. It's got GREAT support for a Joomla extension, it seems quite powerful, but... eewww. (I've GOT to learn my CSS FASTER!) So I got to wondering, what makes up a beautiful forum, and what's the best integrated forum design you've done/seen/been involved in, and what software did you use to integrate it into the rest of the site? Or... just what have you seen that you just found beautiful (as beautiful as forums can be... they do have to cater for all those threads and that usually means a grid).
