What version do you use?

Post by Eman and Kou on Tue Oct 13, 2009 4:32 am

First topic message reminder :

What version do you use?

Why did you use it?

What is your favorite version?

Why is it your favorite version?

What version would you recommend to a beginning user and why?

----------------------------------------

The version i use the most personally is phpbb2.

Reason being its relatively simple for my users to navigate on. They don't have to search all over for most things and its pretty easy to customize. I like discovering new things to tinker with in it as well such as the templates feature.

My overall favorite version is probably going to be invision.

Reason being? It's really cool looking. The futuristic feel it gives makes it an awesome choice for more advanced forum makers. Also with its fully customizable CSS sheet its a designers paradise. The only thing i'm pretty much saddened about is the lack of template editing though i hope in the future it'll be allowed.

I'd probably recommend either phpbb2, or punbb. Both are pretty simple and easy to design and there are perhaps hundreds of tutorials and screenshots that the person could use to better design their site. Plus it allows them to grow into the development phase by giving them plenty of tools that they could use to design their forum.

Actually...what I used is far, FAR beyond CSS -- though the CSS is indeed pretty complicated.

My point? I guess we're back to what started all this:

@I wrote:And anyone who says phpBB3 and IPB2 are less customizable than phpBB2 or PunBB here on forumotion doesn't know what they're talking about. There is nothing, and I repeat NOTHING, that can't be done on these boards that people using templates are doing on phpBB2 and PunBB boards.
THAT'S my point. I see no reason to use or support a buggy board like PunBB or a hacker's dream board like phpBB2, not when MUCH superior boards like phpBB3 and IPB2/Invision can be customized to the same level.

What's far beyond CSS? Did you stick HTML in the catagoreys, annocmeants, ect.? If you think there is something that can be done on Invision that can't be done on punBB then you're wrong. Also, once again, I am not defending phpBB2, and phpBB3 may be the version with the least bugs, but you can't do anything with it, no matter what you do with it you can easily tell that it is a phpBB3 forum.

Alright, Justin, Dion. This topic is not for debate on what version you think is less buggy or whatever. Its just to see what you use and why you use it. Try and keep it to the main theme of the topic please.

That poll is about someone who's trying to decide what version to use. I'm just seeing what everyone uses and why they use it.

What version do you use?
phpbb2

Why did you use it?
Only because it has template editing and easy use of design in the forum.

What is your favorite version?
Invision and bb2 are both tied.

Why is it your favorite version?
What I stated above. "Only because it has template editing and easy use of design in the forum."

What version would you recommend to a beginning user and why?
I would have to say phpbb2. It has more relevant usage and easy-to-configure templating.

When I first joined Forumotion, I was using phpBB3 and I liked it very much. I found it to be very stable and a well thought out platform. Recently, I was persuaded to upgrade to the Invision board and I'm glad I did! Smile

I suppose for everyone it depends on your level of experience and comfort in what version you use but I prefer to have the most current and up-to-date things. Wink

With Invision there are several features not available in the others such as improved ONLINE STATISTICS with different graphics for each, page numbering on posts, a better memberlist and improved access to profile features in the post profiles to mention a few. Smile

Im using Invision, cause all of the forums Ive been on have been this version.

I find it very difficult to manage. But Id say its cause Im just a novice.
If there is a topic with a list of those CSS codes for Invision to make the forum look nicer, can someone post the link please.
