At the moment IPB no doubt, but, xenForo looks very promising. Sadly, i'm too lazy to try and do a switch on a test machine...

Well this site is for IPB so this vote is a lil bit weird cuz who will come here to vote for other community software.

Anyways, I use IPB for like 2-3 years and I'm really happy using it (even tho sometimes there are problems).
So yeah IPB for me is best.

PS: Didn't see the guys above bumped it ...

I messed around with XenForo for a while because I really liked the general look and feel. But for some reason it just didn't "clique" with me.
Switched to IPS 4 and I'm liking this a whole lot better.

There are however a few things I'm missing like a link between the forums and the calendar (for example: make an event and a thread is automatically created). Because my members are too damn lazy to check out the Calender AND the forums.

I had a similar experience with XF, it felt great and there are a fair amount of good looking themes for it. But something was just ... eh' with it.

That and the nav bar pissed me off beyond belief.

I voted for IPB because it is the best in my eyes it is easy to use and fully customizable as long as you know to do it. In addition it offers numerous skin and applying what makes it unique.

Sorry for my bad english.

I think each software has its positives and its negatives but I would have to go with IPB for sure

I love IPB because it seems to run almost everything async. Its awesome to have inline loading vs full refreshes

Considering this is a community basing itself on IPB I suppose the poll is bound to go toward IPB, although I have to say that vBulletin does has its perks as well.

I think, the number of plugins is better on IPB, Xenforo is young, maybe in a few years or with Xenforo 2?

I started out using Mybb, but after it turned shit I wanted to use vBulletin which was crap.. VB was really hard for me to managed, so I went into this website and grabbed a version 3.x..


Been sticking to IPB since that.

My vote was a toss-up between IPB and Vbulletin and I tried hard to decide between the two. In the end, I ended up going with IPB because VBulletin, while great for the business aspects of community, is sometimes overly complicated.

IPB has the right mix of power & simplicity, working well for both the power user, and the average joe.

IPB for me. I've used VBulletin in the past, looked at using Xenforo but the amount of applications and plugins for IPB win every time.

Also loads of nice skins as well.

vBulletin had its glory days, but now that is all done. It decided to stay in the past and not really update much.

IPB is amazing but it's really unsafe, due to the amount of vulnerabilities
