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

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

First topic message reminder :

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 don't like punBB - don't know why, just don't. Invision looks nice and professional, but I have to say I prefer phpBB3.

I 100% prefer phpBB2 because it's completely customizable and you can do more stuff with it. Smile I find other formats other than phpBB2 and phpBB3 too complicated. I don't know why.

Ok,
I would use phbb3 because it is much better and just because it has a bit of bugs you can still clean it like i deleted the forum cookies virus scanned it and it is clean now.
So thats what i do.

Actually, PHPbb2 would be the best (in my opinion). It simply has the best features and more features than the others.

Hi everyone, having considered all the responses to this thread (thanks by the way), I've decided to go for phpBB2 and have now set up my brand new forum.

The template editing will be very useful, although I am currently unfamiliar with forum templates, so I may post a question or two in the help section (after doing a thorough search, first, of course lol). Smile

I Rating for phpbb2, because it is used .Maybe most forum use it and also use the forum Invision.By Invision nor currency, is temporary.But in general, I see phpbb2 is best for the forum I'm using it.

i started with phpbb3
I now run a phpbb2

I switched over

I didn't know anything about php style forums before starting my current one,... and just thought that v3 was better. yea ok, it might be in some ways, but for my site, it's not.

I've also noticed that phpbb3 and punbb and invision can't be customized at all. its like 12% customizable.
-seriously ...


All the platforms are identical in the way they work. They are all safe and stable. Phpbb2 is only better than the others because it has template editing. Apart from that its an ancient forum system, that is going to disappear soon. It has been successfully bettered by phpbb3.
For those that are more ambitious I recommend pun or IPB... you can customize the forum in full... a real 100% customization. I know since I am a designer and have seen and worked with all the platforms.
Currently there is no loser... all the platforms are identical. it all comes down to what the administrator can do with their forum.

Thanks for your comments J, much appreciated.

My question would be, although I am fluent in HTML, I have no experience of IPB. So, who's gonna help me? Do we have any IPB customisation tutorials?

You see, this is the point - if no one helps us, how are we gonna cross over?

It's not in my nature to be negative, and I would really appreciate any help that's available to maximise my potential as a forumotion IPB forum 'host', but I've yet to find enough info on this board to help me fully utilise the IPB option.
