    Your forum software of choice.

    Just wondering what everyones forum software of choice is. Currently my favorite is Invision Power Board. Its packed with almost as many features as VBulliten but its totally free.

    Whats your preference ?

    MY favorite is VBB, if you have the money to buy it, i would buy, its a very good forum to skin, andwhatnot.

    PHPBB is also good forum to skin, and IBF is good but hard to skin.

    VBulletin by far, but as far as 'freeware' goes, PHPBB.

    i voted for PHPBB which is by far the best for free
    although if i had the money spare i would buy VBulletin as its limits are endless

    VBulletin if you can afford it, phpBB if you can't

    I think VBulletin, Invision Power Board and phpBB are all good. I am not familiar with the rest, but for those three, they are really good. They have some differences, but all have load of features. They're good.

    i love phpBB. I wanted to install it on my server, but i didnt feel like dealing with mySQL.

    maybe some day i'll suck it up and deal.

    I have been using Phorum for years and I find it really cool. When choosing forum software you must clearly understaтв what is the point. If you need a small but still powerfull, not overwhelmed with unneeded featureset, seriousely-looking forum then Phorum is for you. I generally use it for small forums for buisness websites (except hosting companies forums which should in fact be a community of loyal users IMHO).

    If you need a community-style forum my choice is Invision. I find it really brilliant (and free ) . Once upon a tim eI have tried vB... well... quite good, but you need to buy it. Then those callhomes disturb me. Finally the code is quite dirty making it not a good toy to play with. Invision's code is clear and nice so modding is a pleasure
