I was looking for forum software for a new project, and after a few days of looking around I was going to use another software forum. The problem was that it was new, poorly supported, and would require a database that my host doesn't provide for me. So, it was finally dropped and after another day of looking I found Vanilla.
I wasn't completely confident, but figured, "meh, they all have issues" and assumed that I was going to spend some time finding how to make it work for my install.
One of the things I wanted was to have youtube videos embed from the link, and I couldn't find an addon that did that, until I search the support forum and found that it was built in. Thanks. That's one less item on my list to get in place. Also the addition of markdown is a nice touch.
