And with my first board with phpBB, I notces that there are no style sheets. You chooise from a template, which really sucks.

Actually, there are style sheets but a full skin set is called a template on phpBB.

I say phpBB since its so simple to hack/mod (not becoming admin or anything, I mean adding new features and stuff). Administration wise, phpBB is the far better choice, but IPB definitely kills phpBB on the user mode.

Also remember, IPB is $80 a year.

No IPB 1.3.1 is outdated and IPB is 69.75$ a year not 80$ unless you pay 200$ for it the first time but you need a web server for it.

phpBB sucks compared to any version of IPB even the first version.
