which do u prefer? Invision Power Board, PhpBB, or vBulletin?
THe Best :imho:
You should start a poll
Not like there aren't 5000 other threads with this same question.
Sadly, phpBB has fallen behind the two boards.
Invision Power Board for fan/personal communities :music:
vBulletin for biz/professional communities
phpBB for nothing :p
I agree with Petter. Hell I just started to develop a fan site but well it was either crappy IPB 1.3 or crappy phpBB. I chose phpBB. I wish I had access to my copy of IPB 2.0 Unlimited Trial.
I prefer IPB because I like it. Nothin much to say
Yeah Me Prefer IPB Tooo
Personally, I think Inivision Board is the most user-friendly, the easiest to modify the skins for, and has the best default skin. It also has Invisionize.com to get shop mods and such, as well as their forums where you can get quick answers on fixing up your forums from other users. vB is also good, but I find it not to have that sleek design that IPB has.
Id prefer PHPBB cuse its a easyier to use script but if u think bout it IPB AND VB do have more features and also are easyier to create templates but im ognna say phpbb will ctach back up
I prefer Invision Power Board....
all the way
vBulletin is the best, but mainly I use phpBB becasue it is free
IPB :D :D :wave:
I have to say phpBB as it is the only BB that I have installed on my site.
VB for sure, its the most secure of the 3
in order ...
SimpleMachines (even though it wasnt listed)
yeah i like ipb but now that it's not free... vb was my paid favorite and i guess it still is cus i don't like ipb.. now that you have to pay for it... Phpbb... don't like it... maybe with the new version it'll be better. . .
You are all understandibly saying vb, but lets not forget the crucial factor, phpBB is FREE. VB will set you back $160! There are also plenty off add ons for phpBB. For these reasons i would choose phpBB as it is not that far behind vb in my opinion and it is $160 less! No brainer really, although i must admit i have used vb for a couple of forums.
but, theres a reason its $160
all the others suck
ok im afraid what you said is completely void of reasonable argument. The forum that is provided by vb is top quality, however is not free therefore puts it out of the market for some people. phpBB is FREE and is therefore aimed at the market who cannot or will not spend that amount of money on there forum. In my experience phpBB is more than adequate, it does not have the mass of features the vb has however for its price i wouldn't expect it to. To say that (what i imagine) a forum provider to millions of sites sucks is ignorant of this important fact.
You may not think it is as good as vb, that is your opinion and i respect it and it may even be the case that it is not as good, but it is aimed at a different market therefore i do not think you can simply compare them on the basis of which one is better.
"different strokes for different folks"
this question gets asked weekly. and its not actually saying which is the best just a bunch of people saying why they think $board is the best
each have there pros, each have there cons. use which one you can a) affoard b) can use
