Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi all,
I'd like to add a bullitin board to my website. I do perl as a hobby and was wondering if you guys could suggest to me how you would add a bulletin board if you needed one. WOuld you use ikonboard or something like that, are there perl modules I could use, or would you build one from scratch.
Thanks.

    If this was for a client, i would pick a an existing solution that allows you to configure it. It doesn't matter to me if the bulletin board was coded in Perl, PHP, or Python, as long as i can install it, configure it to my needs, and it can handle a fairly large amount of traffic.

    If this was for my own needs, i would still probably pick an existing solution, but if i were just wanting to learn how bulletin boards worked, i would code my own. In Perl with lots of CPAN modules. :) (i would try to incorporate Template with Class::DBI.)

    For the record, i have succussfully used Infopop's Ultimate Bulletin Board in the past ... but that was for a paying client. I am sure there are decent free solutions out there.
