The one BIG difference I see between Vbulletin and phpBB is, and I give the nod to Vbulletin for this, the members information is displayed at the top of a post window, and the whole rest of the window from right margin to left is then open for whatever, pictures, etc., whereas the phpBB chops the post window off all the way down no matter how long a post is with the width of the members info. It's a LOT of wasted space. I wish there was a way to change that. Other than that, I do really like the phpBB.

1.vbulletin requires you upload it to your own server or pay someone else to allow you to use their server.

2.Never heard of the rest.

Truthfully, it seems to me that most big sites use vbulletin and some personal ones, I would love to try it out someday, but I can't pay money for it.

Well if you don't want ads on your forum, you have to pay for the phpBB too.

I have no real gripes with the phpBB other than what I talked about above. I think it's the nicest board by leaps and bounds for basically free.

I could afford a VBulletin, but that's only useful if your forum is popular ^_^

I vote for VBulletin.

if you know what to do with the html pages then these features are ideal.

I would vote for SMF. I have it5 on my site since i left forumotion and love it. It is more complicated and costs, but those are the only two downfalls i have encountered so far. 2.0 beta 4 is really nice.

phpBB Doesnot have much holes
this is just not true
Arab Forums mostly use a nulled version of vBulletin not caring about being reported to the hosting service
so 99% of arab forums are vBulletin
we got some good crackers that made use of every single hole in vBulletin
and believe me when u choose a software
more common , less protected
on the other hand
phpBB is not so much complicated and common like vBulletin
it has fewer holes and if you can find a hole in ur version its definetly because of some stupid untrusted mod

phpBB :
- Safer
- Free
- Cool Designs
- Easy to use
- User friendly
- Easy moded
- Good Support at phpbb.com

vBull**** :
- High Cost
- Comlicated
- Hacked by every single hacker in the universe
- stinky themes
- easy moded
- extra user friendly with lots of features
- good support but not as good as phpBB

SO I'D GO FOR phpBB

I would choose vBulletin in the past...But since the new updates,phpBB is on the top list,lol.My members also said they don't want move to a vBulletin forum...They wanted to stay on a phpBB3 forum,lol.

Am not a fan of the other options,so you know what that means, Thumb down

vBulletin is very expensive,and that's why phpBB takes the cake again...Every month you have to pay to keep your vBulletin forum alive, beu ,plus the 180USD to start it up...Sure,it's simple to use,and the features are great,but for a free forum{phpBB},I would have to go with phpBB...
