IPB Or PhpBB?

If I wasn't already using IPB, I would use PhpBB.  I like that it is free and open source.

Well I used phpBB.

Just because one, it is faster to set up, two, I suck with colour scheming for IPB, and three it doesn't take as much work to handle.

Here's why IPB is better.

1.) More Features.
2.) More customize.
3.) Much more professinaonl looking.
4.) Easier to make skins.

Ya, I agree IPB is better, but I suck with it.

phpBB is faster, so I took the cheap way out.

YaBB is a horrible forum system, I've hated it ever since it existed. It is exactly like ProBoards.

phpBB is great if you don't want to spend any money.

Yeah phpBB can be pretty good but it has no subforums. I think they just released a new version this week.

Just get 1.3.1. It's free and it's great. I use IPB 1.3.1 for my site and I like how simple it is.

I suggest IPB.

You can't get IPB 1.3.1 anymore unless you know someone that has it or if you have an auto installer of it in cPanel.

What about the new versions of IPB and PHPBB?  I think PhpBB has gotten way better.

Yes, I imagine 5 years is enough to do quite a bit of software development...
