I am looking to create a forum and I've got a pretty good, niche idea. I am familiar with a lot of languages (HTML5, css, php, javascript etc) but I don't think I am able or have the time to create a website from scratch.

However, I am not looking for a drag and drop service which leaves me with no control whatsoever.

So, I am looking for a paid or free service that offers me the ability to create a serious, monetized forum where I can control everything but automate some processes I am not particularly good at?

    Please edit your question and add specific details. Value judgements like a drag and drop service which leaves me with no control are not a criterion we can recommend something on. Make a list of must/should/could have features. What is "where I can control everything"? You are also not mentioning your hosting environment, a price range, whatever.
