    Re: Favourite forum software

    Hello!







    I would recommend MyBB. phpBB is a good software but MyBB is somewhat better. MyBB is basically a forum software for those newbies. phpBB offers great modifications and themes, but there's just one major problem. Installing modifications required file editing. I know the modification folder offers a installation guide, but sometimes the person could get accidentally mess up and could get an error. Do you have to do all that again? unless you backup your files and databases. As for MyBB, all you need to do is just upload the files to the correct directory and activate the plugin. It's that simple. But I have to agree that phpBB styles are better than MyBB themes.

    I love IP.Board. It is in my opinion, the best forum software out there. The support is great, the features rock, and it's simple for your users to use.

    PhpBB and MyBB are my two favorite. Very good mods for both of them.

    This. Although vBulletin and MyBB are also top contenders too.

    My favourite forum software is MyBB, I am loyal fan of MyBB since the beginning and I would be until the end. But I am also impressed by the IPB 1.3 (Free Version).

    vBulletin has the worst Admin CP, and the culture within the support and development is horrible. Plus, they will never improve now that Kier Darby's out of the team. The best commercial forum software is IPB. It's always constantly improving, and the support there is not afraid to go into your forums and fix your errors without you having to do anything other than create a support ticket. If not IPB, MyBB is great too. Both are excellent when it comes to theming and mod installation (in most cases, no file edits are necessary). MyBB has the most flexible theme system out there, and all it really takes is some (x)HTML, CSS, and variables, really. I'll also give an honourable mention to SMF as well, because their package manager has a high level of potential in use, not only to install mods, but to upgrade versions of software and theme install as well.
