    Favorite Forum Software?

    What is your favorite forum software? Two categories-free and not free.

    I have just installed Invision v1.0.1 and it's pretty good for free, but I really like vBulletin v2.2.6

    vBulletin all the way!
    I've been using it for over 2 years now -- wouldn't want to use anything else (yes, I have tried others -- not the same)

    phpbb is cool...
    A student once asked his teacher, "Master, what is enlightenment?"
    The master replied, "When hungry, eat. When tired, sleep. When you need care, come to bobcares...."

    PHPBB has all the functionality I need and the price is right.

    Invision Board for free forum software. vBulletin for non-free forum software. I've never used vBulletin but how could so many be wrong?

    OK, I see a lot of votes for vBulletin,Inivision and PHPBB , I don't see any votes for XMB. Has anyone used XMB, if so, what did you think?

    vBulletin - tons of features, great support and development team, and much much more! Heh

    V3.0 will have even more features, quite a few could already be achieved by "hacking" your 2.2.x version though. Nevertheless the v3.0 release will be a great enhancement imho.

    iBF / phpBB are great (free) options aswell btw, both very nice (and phpBB is even very secure) solutions if you want to run a forum on your website. Both can be adjusted to your websites' looks, very nice imho.

    I've used it, didn't like it much, but it's still a pretty good piece of software.

    Didn't like XMB much, either. I love phpBB as a freebie and vBulletin can't be beat in the paid department.

    I've used Burning Board and phpbb in the past. Now I have started a new forum using Invision board and thus far I like invision board out of all three.

    Invision Board is the fastest forum software available and possesses most, if not all, of the features vBulletin does.

    I have been looking at PhpBB and it is starting to look interesting to me. How much can it be customized?

    I've found phpBB to be one of the best so far in terms of cpu demand... although I haven't tried Invision.

    Any way you want, you can start out with simple theme changes, premade mods, to totally changing the code around and creating a custom forum/portal yourself.

    Best: vBulletin

    Anyone noticed that UBB hasn't been mentionned even once, considering everything good about them? (<-- I can't believe I even said that! )

    Goes to show that with vBulletin versus UBB, vBulletin is much better

    OK....After reading all the suggestions and trying a few free boards, I have to say that vBulletin ROCKS!
    Just installed v2.2.6 , I can't believe all the available options.
    I have to add that the Invisions board isn't bad for free!

    The latest version of vBulletin is 2.2.7, so how can you have 2.2.6..? Unless you installed it a while ago.

    EDIT: I checked your board and found that you registered today. Where did you get your version of 2.2.6 from..?

    You forgot an I in that URL

    BTW, Infinity Board's design doesn't look too good, the text is quite difficult to read compared to others

    THANKS

    http://www.infinityboard.com - is the URL
    It is not yet ready, but I love it's control panel and it's designer is very open to suggestions, unlike some I could mention. "It's text" will be much harder to read once you see it operating in 37 languages
