Invision Power Board is a good one, it's also got a lot of free add-ons to add just about any feature you could want. but a Permanent License costs $130. ^^;;;

Probably not. Jamie, didn't you give Hammad your vB license?
That was purely for 'useful' purposes only (you know what the useful purposes are :tongue:). I do not, and I do not intend to use his license to set up my own forum. Partially 'cuz I am aware that if I do, Jamie will be on me like a ton of penis suck- I mean bricks. :(:

I love how everyone in this thread is voting vB purely based off of one reason, because RZ uses it.

Go with IPB. There is a reason it costs more. It's way better and would run a database size as big as RZ's better than vB would. I own a vB license and would pick IPB over it any day. Had a little debate with trav over this. =p

IPB is more secure than vBulletin

vBulletin is more flexible

You choose whether you KNOW that theres going to be hackers on your site, or something dangerous
Or you want your website to be really customizable

Either way, they both are premium software, and usign them without a license is not good at all for your website, so stick with PHPBB,, flexible and secure. not to mention it's free

PhpBB is not quiet flexible. But is worth much more. I would choose it over both if I'm low on the budget.

@ lewis;; IPB is proven the most secure

@IQstim;; Well yeah, but it's more flexible than IPB, but less flexible than vbulletin (in the middle)

The system works much more like the certain OS's, instinctively saying.

VBulletin can't handle security very well, Invision has a class when it comes to its presentation, & PhpBB is very sophisticated.

Well, vbulletin does have a good security system, but it's just that SOOO many users have the files, and use it alot, that it's common. The more common the software, the better of a chance that somebody will find a hole.
