I've always been a user of free forums. phpbb and SMF usually. I tried xenforo briefly before moving to Invision.
I have to say I like it quite a lot. the admin CP is clean and easy to use and installation of addon / mods is super simple.
In my limited experience. I prefer IPB over Xenforo

IPB is better overall in my opinion simply due to its many administration features aswells as having a very nice cms.

Well they both have negatives xen has far to many options and can be real annoying just to do the simplest of thing but then ips is the opposite no fun its all done for you

Currently im using xenforo i have to say its very easy to customise the themes and styles and the addons are easy to install etc
But its very limited on what i want from m,y forum without having to pay ridiculous amounts of money
I have a old ipb license but not paid up to date but i remember there was a great lady what made amazing themes for ipb and the look and feel and ease is tempting me back towards ipb

But Xenforo is a very good forum software !

IPB is alot easier to use, compared to Xenforo. Same goes for Iphone and Andriod, I'm probably just used to using IPB.

Used IPB over the years, as far as straightforward message boarding goes, both it and XenForo are pretty much on par. IPB has some nice add-ons that I haven't used

I have never used xenforo, I am not sure why I did not test, but the IPB made me put aside all the others. I adapted very quickly to the operation. I believe it is very intuitive and a very large support community.

Hello, in my experience after having used both, I prefer IPB since it is much more customizable than XenForo, and existing plugins is a much needed plus in the community.

I personally would never use IPS in a serious environment. It is good for gaming forums, but not else. It sucks up a lot of resources and if you are hosting your forum in the cloud (pay for what you use), then it gets expensive. IPS is also really slow compared to other forums. Unless you are using APC (in PHP it is called “apcu”) + OPcache. Otherwise, the lag is unbearable, even with the fastest internet.

Do not use IPB. It is outdated and not secure. If you do not care about your server security, at least consider the users. I personally enjoy nodebb. It is really beautiful.
