That are suitable import scripts available in the vBulletin members area.

Both have converters to go form one to the other.

Has anyone used both and could answer the following:

What advantages does vBulletin have over the latest phpbb version in terms of creating a successful forum?

I personally would use invision board, which can be found at Http://www.invisionboard.com/

Though to actually answer your question, I believe that VBulletin has more advanced features than phpBB, and is certainly more recognised, therefore your members may find it easier to use.

vbulletin is the best forum software on the market right now for it's price range. When looking at it's competitors (UBB, Invision, YaBB, PhpBB2, Ikonboard) it stands out above the rest. On the other hand, if you can't afford $85 a month then PhpBB2 does come in a close second... IMO though, if anyone is serious about starting up forums, they should start with vbulletin from the start, cause if your forums get big, importing posts can be tricky. This is why I paid $85 for vbulletin on my site even though I really didn't have the money and i'm glad I did it now cause PhpBB is newbish

vB is very popular. I like it because I'm used to its interface. I don't like the code though. This will hopefully change in vB3.

I reckon the new PHP & MySQL version of YaBB looks very nice.
Grab it at www.yabb.info

Also phpbb is a good forum if you know how to do great mods to it. It can also handle alot of traffic if your worried about that, just check out the forum at www.americasarmy.com/forum/

Acronym BOY,

Yep, I hang around here. I just do not get into phpBB vs. VBul discussions. If you want info on what phpBB can/can't do or traffic levels etc. I'd be happy to discuss that.

I've narrowed my decision down to 3 boards
vBulletin
Invision Board
phpbb

Whether we have to pay or not isn't an issue. We simply want to make an educated decision based on feedback from those experienced with these boards.

We will be hosting the board on a server at RackSpace with an allotted 30GB of bandwidth per month.

From a graphical standpoint, we are very impressed with Invision Board. Has anyone here used vBulletin and Invision Board?
