I'm kinda excited about this. Flarum has hit its 1.0 release after 7 years of development. https://flarum.org/
If your project needs a non-shitty "web forum" that isn't an unstructured Twitter clone, check it out. It's free software that you have to install on your own web server.
(PHP. And don't give me shit about PHP; it's not what it was in the past, and lots of good software is built with it.)
forgot to say: I've been using Flarum for a few years for NY Amateur Computer Club. I can tell you first hand it has good form designs, and good navigation flow.
