What would you recommend as a highly customizable forum package?

I am about to create a new website that will be very helpful when using custom forums.

Since I already have user accounts and profile data stored, it seems that I would benefit from choosing an open source forum package that I could modify so that the logins are tested against my existing database.

My whole site is Perl-based right now, and looking around I don't see many great Perl forums - the only thing I can find that is special is yabb - but this is written to authenticate against flat files, and honestly the code is nasty ...

If I need to use a PHP solution so be it, but first are there some simple forums written in Perl that you would suggest? I expect to have different forums and assign specific users as moderators. More than what I don't need, just a basic thread and an attractive look.

In fact, simple forums are often really insecure forums. If you are determined to use perl the main web forum will not come to mind, and if your security knowledgeable I will tell you yours. You can even post it to the open source community to help people like you. I know there are some great PHP modules out there that are not so unreliable, well developed enough.



I seem to remember that Drupal had a sane form as a module.
