I would like to have forum structured like this.

On the main web page last 15 opened threads (topic?)
on forum page devidet by groups, in every group you see 15 last opened threads

when you open a thread than comments should have simple view

(Here you can see sample of 3 pages of very simple forum)

thank you for your answer.

miniBB doesn't provide such views by default, but you could code your own PHP index file and use the free "First page news" add-on, configuring it to the view mode you provide on the 1st screenshot.

The same add-on could be used for the 2nd screenshot, you just need to include it multiple times, sending different parameters.

As about the 3rd screenshot, you could modify default template (main_posts_cell.html) and probably use the functionality of parseMessage() function to achieve the view like this. But also note, that miniBB contains a lot administrative links, which also appear on the message thread view. So you will need to make a plan of fitting them into a such simple layout for admin, too.

Also, in bb_plugins.php you would probably need to put some little codes preventing accessing default miniBB views and templates, so they do not duplicate with your own index.
