    esoTalk is a light-weight Internet forum package written in the PHP scripting language. Available under the GNU General Public License, esoTalk is a free software. It is designed to be simple, fast, and fully featured.[1]


    Being a simple and fast Internet forum package, esoTalk only includes major functions for discussion. Unlike other Internet forums, an esoTalk forum only includes one board and no category, and the only board is also the main page. It uses tags to categorize everything such as private conversations and drafts.[1]

    Based on Ajax, an esoTalk forum automatically updates while someone replying, and people can easily switch to what they want to read by scrolling the blue bar. It is convenient to add and remove skins and plugins, change a member's status, and “star” conversations by one-clicking on an esoTalk forum.[2]

    The package of self-made esoTalk emoticons is also released on Wikimedia Commons.


    esoTalk has been being developed since early 2008, but it was still in alpha stage until December 2009. esoTalk was originally developed and designed by the Australian brothers, Simon Zerner and Toby Zerner, and over a half part of original codes were written by Simon; however, Simon died in mid-2009, and his brother Toby continued the development.

    The first public beta version, 1.0.0 beta 1, has been released on 1 December 2009.
