How much does it cost to set up a CreateMyBB Forum?
It is absolutely free to setup your very own MyBulletinBoard board through CreateMyBB! There are no hidden fees and there never will be.
What type of support is available?
We offer free support at our support forums where our friendly support staff will help you with your problems.
Can I install modifications on my board?
Yes and no. You cannot edit the code of any of the files, but we have some pre-uploaded plugins that you can activate to use on your forum, such as the Cash Plugin. Additionally, you can edit all of your board's templates, letting you customize it all you want in the look and feel standpoint.
What will the URL to my board be like?
It will be similar to https://yourboard.createmybb.com/ However, we also have some other domains that you can access your board through. These can be found in this thread at the support forums.
Will I be able to edit my board's logo, images, and style?
Yes! We allow you to edit every aspect of your template with the full template system, as well as every aspect of your theme with the theming system. You can change your logo through the theme edit page, and you can change all of the images that you wish, along with the templates.
How is CreateMyBB's service free?
CreateMyBB is free and can remain free through small advertisements displayed on the top of every page on your forum and on the bottom of the show thread pages. We make money through these advertisements, which therefore lets us pay for the hosting and provide the many services we offer.
What types of advertisements are displayed?
Currently, banner and text ads are displayed on your board. We try to keep as few as possible to help make them as invisible as possible. We do not sell your email address or the email addresses of those that register on your forum, and we also do not display pop-ups or pop-under ads. Our advertisements should not ever interrupt your board's general functioning or ongoings.
