What's your favorite forum software?

Post by DarkBlaze on Thu Jan 22, 2015 2:12 am

First topic message reminder :

There are tons of different forum software out on the web, each with different features. Which is your personal favorite and why? For paid software, IPB is definitely the best. The admin control panel looks amazing, and it's very easy to navigate. Plus there are so many features that come with just the board itself, making it very easy to use for newcomers. It's definitely worth buying a liscense for it. However if you're looking for a free forum software alternative, MyBB and phpBB are wonderful. I also like ModernBB too, it's not as well known as phpBB or MyBB but it's default theme looks awesome and the admin control panel is easy to navigate. It's just lacking in some features that MyBB and phpBB has...

Ah, yes. I've never encountered any over there, but I'm sure they exist. Smile

Oh not always that, but the you get other users commenting or asking "WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU WANT TO DO THAT!". Some or things we ask Ange for on hos forum can be a bit unorthodex sometimes.

Well, let's bring this thread back on-topic! Very Happy

I'm thinking about leaving IcyBoards and using Piko's Place instead. Better ACP.

Yea. It's just a bit of a hassle to get the database thingy and then transfer everything over.

No, no, no. It's MyBB 1.8, but there are way more things than the ACP that IcyBoards has. More plugins, more options, etc.
