What are the best tool for creating community forums?
Like creating a Growthhacker or Inbound type forum? And what are the best practices to transition your existing audience there?
I think GrowthHackers & Inbound use custom software.
I've seen a large uptick in the number of forums that are moving to Discourse. I love their clean UI and the software is free - http://www.discourse.org/
i like it - but its not free.. =/
Says its 100% free open source software at http://www.discourse.org/faq/
Yep - @imkevinkelly is right - GH is custom built on Ruby, however when it first started out it was built on Wordpress.
A couple I've come across are:

b. http://www.telescopeapp.org/ - need to have coding expertise (originally created by @SachaG)

Do you guys have a recommendation for a Wordpress based solution?
