I'm trying to decide which bulletin board to go with. I like the many features of vBulletin but also like the relatively low pricing of DCForum.
Can anybody offer a comparison of the two? I'd especially be interested in hearing a comparison based on the installation, configuration and control panel of the two boards.
Also, I am somewhat proficient with computers, especially networking, but have no experience with Perl or PHP/MySQL. Whichever board I choose, should I pay the software company to install it for me? If I don't and attempt to install it myself, but then can't do so, will it be a big hassle to go back to the company several days after purchase and then pay to have them install it?
