WebWhiz was awful. I remember when GameShark moved from IGNboards to Webwhiz before settling on IPB before they ultimately closed their doors permanently.
Incredibly there is a car forum that I visit from time to time which is still relatively active that still uses Web Wiz - it really is an abysmal piece of software by today's standards, but the site owner is quite stubborn with regards to replacing it with something from this century!

I'd link it here but as it's probably all kinds of insecure I should probably avoid doing so!

Well, WebWiz is still around and still getting patches even as recently as February this year, but agree that it is awful, to look at, to navigate and use.

If your are referring to Lithium, it's long gone. It was acquired by a private equity firm who also acquired Spredfast and merged the two companies to form Khoros. I've had some experience using Lithium but not Khoros. Comparing Lithium as it was to forum platforms the majority of us are more familiar with is somewhat akin to comparing apples and oranges. Lithium/Khoros is aimed at a different market with very deep pockets.
It's terrible, whatever it's called.
