A client uses a forum for swapping recipes with her friends overseas and has had problems with using open source forum scripts due to hacking, etc. She would like to hopefully find someone who has already coded a forum script, but who has not released it as open source to reduce the vulnerability of her small forum. The final alternative would be to have one coded from scratch. Features are as per the feature list of SMF or close to that list: [url removed, login to view] Happy to see bids for both supplied pre-existing script and work from scratch, in case we can subsidize the work.
