Currently use phpbb but looking to get xenforo
XF all the way. VB4 is out dated. VB5 isn't even a forum, more of a CMS and a poor quality over priced one at that.
Free ones usually suck when it comes to customising them.
IPB is too expensive for what it can do.
XF is bang on the money and is building its database of add-ons quite quickly.
Zetaboards, phpBB, MyBB.
I'm not too keen on the paid software.
NodeBB! Based out of Toronto! These guys are trying to evolve the standard forum by making it visually aesthetic and mobile friendly
I am still like SMF forums
With IPB right now, but in the process of doing a conversion over to SMF, just about done..
I have tried other forum software, but those two seem the easiest for me to administrate and troubleshoot problems. Although Xenforo overall wins out. SMF is good when I want to put up a forum but not sure if it will work out or not. Better to use a free forum than sink money into another Xenforo license.
I use PhpBB. I like viglink option and the look of it.
If you don't mind answering, what is exactly is the viglink option?
Viglink can be turned on or off. If you don't know what viglink is, just google it.
I will do that.
Basically you can earn with your forum When viglink automatically adds an affiliate link into forum posts. Lets say you write word tennis into the topic. Viglink makes it ebay link and when they press that tennis link it leads to ebay.com and from every sale, you get a commission.
Thank you for taking the time to tell me. Sounds like a really nice option indeed especially with viglink adding the affiliate links themselves.
I used to like Vbulletin but i have gone now for IPB i feel it works best for the ideas i have to date.
I most favorite forum software is Vbulletin. I was using vb4 latter upgraded to vB5 which I have never regretted, I like the feel, and my forum members really like the look. If you want to see for your self the name is Trendri.com
XenForo 2.1 all the way
