we use SMF. In my opinion it's better than phpBB, but the high security is a mythos (look at the source and their release practices).

We don't use Quicklinks (instead a caching http:bl implementation), but if you want to include links, you have to modify your current theme.
Go to the Admin-Panel:
Configuration -> Themes and Layout -> Modify Themes -> Browse the templates and files in this theme (your current theme)
At this point, you need some html-skills. Our honeypot is linked (invisibly) behind the headline and in the footer in index.template.php. (Make a backup, try it with a local installation and validate the html-output).
