    What do you think is the Best CMS creating a FORUM website?

  2. #2
    Something like vbAdvanced?.

    Based on vBulletin forum software, the same software forum as WHT.

    I have only used phpBB for creating a forum and that was only for test purposes but it was very easy to get on with and manage. I would highly recommend it.

    vbulletin is good and most popular but vbulletin is paid and you can also try phpBB that one is open source and good features aswell and mostly people use it because that it is open source and you can get free mods too.

    There are quite a few:

    vBulletin
    XenForo
    Invision Power Board
    MyBB
    Phpbb
    PunBB
    SMF
    etc

    In my opinion, the best is whatever you can grow well with. A lot of these scripts are free, and some of the better ones paid. However, I think when it comes to addons, then IPB/vBulletin are the winners. As for CMS, I believe all of these either have addons or settings from a front page CMS system.

    MiniBB is probably my favourite...

    It is not so "mini" - one of the easiest to skin, plugin based to extend and add only the required features (some plugins are paid)

    Probably one of the biggest advantages - it is not on the radar for the spam bots to post to

    vbulletin & phpBB

    Has to be vbulletin and phpBB! phpBB, especially. It's the best forum CMS I've come across!

    Given the hacking of phpBB in years past -- "raping and pillaging" would be more accurate -- I fail to understand why people still suggest it. The security hasn't gotten any better over time.

    The spam situation is even worse.

    You almost have to be into S&M to want that much self-inflicted admin frustration.

    I don't know of a single popular/quality forum that is still using it. Most are now on vBulletin, IPB, or XenForo.

    If you want seamless integration with a forum and a CMS, I can think of only 3.

    IPB + IP.C (Paid): The most powerful out of three.

    Joomla + Kunena (Free)

    Vbulletin + VbCMS (Paid): Vb is going downhill rapidly, so I suggest you avoid Vb.
    I choose not to use my signature for advertising.

    It doesn't matter how much you claim how important your data is. If it's not backed up, it's not important.

    Is it the new Beta version that is going down hill or something else?

    phpBB - don't use this unless you have a good reason to, and make sure you secure it well.

    I'd use myBB for a forum site every time.

    Personally I quite like MyBB, other then that would be vBulletin.
