phpbb, as seen in the logo at the top left of your window, is a software program written with the php scripting language to provide a bulletin board (bb) functionality.

Wikipedia has a decent writeup on the php scripting language if you want to know more:

For Lymphedema People, phpbb provides a far more robust, efficient, and easier to host solution to providing these forums. Our previous solution, while suitable, lacked many of the features our savvy members have come to expect and had become a veritable nightmare to host and support. Our webhost essentially refused to allow us to continue with our old forums, so we opted to implement phpbb. I hope you find it to be as easy to use as we have.
