CIBB: An Experimental Basic Forum Built With Codeigniter and Twitter Bootstrap

August 15th, 2012 by aditia rahman / 12 Comments  


About a month ago I have posted a post list about open source forum software based on PHP, and lately I found twitter bootstrap, is a set library for popular user interface component and interaction. In this post I only share what I’m doing with codeigniter and bootstrap for creating a simple forum software, I called CIBB (Codeigniter Bulletin Board).

For learning more about using twitter bootstrap I made this and completely using a basic bootstrap style, I only create a very basic forum software so do not expect to much features from it, but you can download and use it for any kind of purpose.


1. User roles management

2. Rich text editor using jWysiwyg

3. Threaded category

4. Basic forum (create thread, post reply)


I’ve not create the web installer yet, so you have to manually export the sql file (cibb.sql) to your mysql administrator, and on the web change the $config['base_url'] in config.php and change databse value in database.php, like in official codeigniter user guide.

Sample Screen

thread index

thread talk

list of roles
