Hey Varien! First of all, awesome job with the shopping cart! I was looking at your forum software which also looks very nice! Is this custom coded? Using the zend framework? Or is it something freely available? Please let me know, I love how it all looks!

Sam, the whole site and forums are running under customised Expression Engine. It isn’t free for commercial purposes but you can get a Core Edition that is available free for download. More information at http://expressionengine.com/

As Adam said, it is a custom implementation based on Expression Engine. It looks nothing like this out of the box.

Thanks for the replies guys! How different is the out-of-the-box solution and what have you changed/how much time went into it?

Although the basic functionality is available, we spent hundreds (if not thousands) of man hours to get it to this point. We are also continuously expanding the product to meet our requirements (we have an entire team allocated to the community site).
