Which would you choose - phpBB2/phpBB3/punBB or Invision?

Post by SophieDophs on November 6th 2008, 2:19 pm

I'm thinking of setting up another forum and I don't know which format to start it off with. Now we have some new updates, are there more advantages to using Invision?

I use punBB as its cleaner looking.

I don't like phpbb3 & phpbb2 they look messy if the skins are not done properly and template editing or codes make them run slow

I'm testing the possiblities on premiumstyles right now...

the CSS has many classes and lots of things to edit... I have a long weekend comming up... and since I'm no patriot I won't be jive-ing when the army comes marching along ... so I'll sit on IPB and see how much the CSS can do.

although i am still waiting for phpbb3 editing,... the CSS is pathetic on phpbb3 so maybe the editing will improve things

Personally, I think I like version 2 best. I'm not a big fan of 3, and punn I'm still getting used to, feeling my way around. So throw this invision in now and I'm like a kid lost in a candy store. Laughing I don't know what I'm doing, but I'm gonna mess with everything. LOL Lol

The IPB profile doesn't feel like IPB at all, it's so plain and non-IPB-like Confused

I was hoping for something like the actually IPB profile which makes IPB so special.

Its in progress ... apparently
Its what I was shouting about in the staff room... if we gonna add the IPB platform we NEED to add the profile... its just so user friendly and there is actually stuff to do on ones profile... the notes board... the friends communcations... the thread views and many more...


Typlo said that the techies wanted the platform first and that the profile will follow... soon...
somethign I'm waiting for ... the current profile is worse than in any other version

I'm thinking about changeing over to Invision - I have it for another forum and I really like it- Template editing is only good if you pay for it- which I don't. Invision still lets you do alot more. So I'm seriously considering it. Smile
