Thread: Phpbb Vs Invision

  1. #1
    hi guys,

    I plan to be hosting a forum soon for programming and was wondering which forum package was better. what is the better one? phpbb or invisionfree? and what about vbulletin?

    thanks

    I'd go for IPB, it's fast and You can customize it more for Your needs.

    phpbb is great for a first time user who wants to setup a forum. it has a simple acp and is very easy to setup category and forum permissions. i am using phpbb for my forum even though i have plenty of experience with ipb

    IPB is great for mods etc. the ACP is quite clutered in my opinion but has plenty of useful things in it.

    Go for IPB. and welcome to the forum

    i prefer to use phpbb - i had invision on before, but converted because i found it much, much simpler to make my forum fit into the layout of my site - just 2 files to edit.

    though if you want a free host, then most likely invision is for you

    I prefer phpbb, but mainly because it&#39;s open-source & free

    this post is guaranteed 100% parrot-free

    yeah, I am probably gonna go for a clicdev or bbfree, then if my forum grows big enough I will move to phpbb as It won&#39;t cost that much to use B)
