I'm making a forum for my school (yes my school) and I need some resources to make it as good as possible.

Can anyone help me?

It's a forum for his school.

A school forum can be anything General or some other.. I never created a school forum so i don't know that is why I'm asking him also he needs to be more specific Smile

My guess is that it's about homework, school related news etc.

Light theme would be good for that then also if he wants custom designed theme he should contact a theme designer. Also Nyan you mentioned resources hmm what type of resources?

You should probably get a custom theme from Aoki, something light would work out.
Maybe use invitation codes to sign up, so you don't get random people signing up.
Use the MyBB default attachments for project files etc, or maybe some other custom plugin.

It all depends on you actually but maybe this could be a good advice from me to you, try using something simple because of course its for your school and if some of other students use the forum and you have too many things going on at once or the design might be hard for them to use nor navigate to things, you should make it very neat and simple also try to keep it professional the forum and organized ;)
