    yeah.
    vBulletin is my favorite of the forum software, but I prefer to use phpBB, cuz it's open source & free.

    this post is guaranteed 100% parrot-free

    Is it?

    I installed vBulletin and I think it's quite crap. The admin has some features but they do what they want only when they want.
    The tables are horrrible, no pre or post fix to identify them and no access to them from the admin. I managed to clean it all out with phpMyadmin by guesswork and luck.
    I think I had to install it 4 times before I could log in. And that filled my email with a whole load of administrative alerts about sql failures and bad html.
    It's installed now but I have no use for it. Just too many bugs and not enough working features.
    I don't even like the look of it. Kinda late 90's cartoon/corporate/pshycodelia


    I can't get the image code to work in a post, tried everything but it'll only work in sigs.


    Play with it if you want, I'll be deleting it soon anyway.

    I have several phbBB boards as well. Security is a problem and the admin is extremely limited.

    It looks nice but it has it's problems.

    Not bad but I wish they'd move some of the controls over to the right. I still can't get used to the left handed back to top button

    i completely agree with you, balamm. phpBB's very limited in my opinion.

    vB works fine for me, it was a lot easier to set up than ikonBoard. and yes, the default vb skin sucks, but you can find some very good ones... check out rpgforums.net or 216.55.176.193/________.________

    But if you need a free PHP/mySQL forum, invision power board is by far the best.
