hello to all according to you is better xenforo or IPB?

I have tried both and xenphorus has several limitations. From the forum rules, in 1 week I had to fix 4 php files to work well, and it does not seem normal for the cost of $ 160.

IPB is great, install and work and everything always works best. What do you think about it ?

Honestly, I prefer IPB over any other forum software, MyBB, FluxBB, and xenforo. IPB is superior to all of them. Not just the look. But the admin CP & Mod CP is just so much nicer and cleaner to handle. And it's so easy to configure, I litterly see no point using anything else than IPB when you have access to IPB. It's like saying bread with butter or no butter (Ok that sounded better in my head). But yeah you get the point. Might have something to with me having more experience with IPB than everything else. I hope you found this somewhat useful.

I also prefer IPB over Xenforo. Like @RouterRage already stated above, the UI is way more cleaner and easier to use. Also I think, there are way more plug ins out there for IPB/IPS.

Xenforo has a very nice skin and easy to use, but if you need to administrate, ipb is much more easy and clean.

I do not know which one is better, although I have just learned them but I chose Ipb because the interface is pretty good, especially I like the interface admincp.

I am currently using Xenforo on my forum and it seems to have a lot of issues a lot of times, Don't get me wrong the forum software is NOT bad but it does seem to have a LOT of limitations as you try to get into it more throughout over time.

In my opinion, IPB/IPS is better than XenForo. TrynCatchMe told the truth about this software.

xenForo is very good indeed, the quality it offers is really great, you can compare to the Invision Power Board until. However, I prefer the Invision Power Board because it is so much easier to wiggle, but after you know how to wiggle the xenForo, the doors will open for you.

I like IPB better because the UI is much cleaner, easier to administrate, and there's a LOT more addons and themes made for  IPB than XF.

I think the IPB is better than Xenforo, it includes much more features and it has a better design.

I would say IPB, worked for years with it and never had a problem. IPB also has lots of plugins and applications which can be very usefull. Xenforo has less.

I was using vBulletin 4 in the past and I also tried vB5. vB4 being non-responsive is a deal breaker immediately. And using vB5 on the forum side is a crap experience in my opinion. Though, I like the admin interface.

If I only look at the forum side of thing, I think xenforo wins. Probably, xF has the most user friendly design. However, IPS is better for customization and it is nicer to work with as an admin.

I migrated to IPB shortly, but I notice a cleaner, user-friendly interface, everything works better and has more plugin and customization options.
