I love ProBoards, and have been using them for a while.
I don't really like them. Its not really customizable. But good for starters
On the user side I like them,but when it comes to the admin side... I wanna puke...
the proboard is good for those starting out on forums, but not the best thing to use if you want to run a huge forum. And like NBK said, I want to puke when messing with the ACP.
I find the ACP fine...and proboards is very customisable in comparison to the paid boards. I've done more with proboards than I would be able to with the others. Well, in terms of look at least.
I gotta disagree dg, proboards is only a heavily edited yabb se.
When compared to ipb in terms of customization. IPB easily beats it.
Case and point - http://www.invisionize.com/market/v-24/Are-You-Sure-This-Is-IPB/
I can easily say I've never seen an IPB forum (FOR FREE) that has been edited to look nothing like IPB.
It may be YABB, but I still think I would only be able to do what I did due to proboards having high access to coding.
Acually you are pretty restriced when using a free board.
Yes, non free software do have mods, but proboards has coding to replace most mods. The only thing I haven't seen that I would like for proboards is an arcade code that records and ranks scores of users. Other than that, there's no other problems I've come across.
The software does have a lot of features, but the layout and the skins are terrible I must say. Worse than any other software.
The skin is only as bad as the user who makes it. I've seen some very nice skins out there.
SMF is free software not in terms of gpl,but it is free.
I agree. PB was the first software that I have ever used. And at the time I had not idea about how to run a forum, and was very intimidated by OF althugh my brother had made me an admin on his forum. While learning about both software at the same time, I quickly realized just how limited it was in comparison, and decided to leave after the release of v4.
Since then, I have never looked back.
I don't really like the layout. it's somehow too crowded for me and hard to sort things out. ^^"
