What is best for a newbie

Post by Bluangel on June 11th 2013, 10:33 pm

There is,, phpBB2 | phpBB3 | punBB | Invision

What is preferred for a newer forum who's admin's have little experience. We had a forum on Proboards which for the most part was easy to use but I am confused. Probably around up to 50 members active. We also will want to maybe in the future do our own designs as far as graphics etc. We will also want to implement some of our own Emoticons. We would like to make our forum age restrictive and have an adult section.

The phpBB2 and the 3 are the ones the seem to attract us most but am willing to listen to other ideas from the experts.

Thank you in Advance.

You can read the last post in this thread for information on all

My personal choice has always been PHPBB3 as it is most up to date and powerful. Although I'm not exactly an expert.

The main differences between PHPBB3 and PHPBB2 is template editing which can grant an extra few features but does have a lot of limitations.

Also I noticed you mentioned Adult Section, having any kind of pornographic content will result in your forum being banned. Lastly all the stuff you mentioned you wanted is available on all forums
