We help communities
gather, share, and thrive.

Did you know that forums pre-date blogs, social networks and smartphones?

They were the first places where communities first gathered and thrived on the Internet. And millions of them are still going strong. From brand communities to product support boards, forums continue to provide value for communities.

“Our mission is to take the spirit and energy of those great forum platforms and give them the features and performance you’ve come to expect from today’s online world.”

Who We Are

NodeBB was founded by three developers with a passion for creating great software. 

Our Co-founders Julian, Andrew and Barış met in 2011 while working at a social game company. They quickly bonded over the idea that the time was right to build a new community platform for the future. In 2014, NodeBB was born. 

We were extremely proud to be named winners of the 2015 CMS Critic People’s Choice Awards for Best Forum Software.

Our communitymotivates us

We want to give a shout-out to the pros in our very own community support forum. Every day our members help us improve our product and push us to find creative solutions. We wouldn’t be where we are today without their support.
