IPB or Xenforo

Recommended Posts

i have been an avid user of IPB.  and recently thought about switching to Xenforo because sometimes get http 500 errors on IPB.  when i did a conversion to Xenforo, a few days ago,  i was completely lost, and the new version of Xen was without things needed to run a forum...  like the email sending for new registrations doesn't exist...  if you switch to the new Xen, be aware that it is lacking the essential tools needed.

Best Regards....

XenForo is great for what it is. If one needs something much simpler and more straightforward than IPS I do recommend it, but it's not even 10% as powerful as IPS.

I feel like IPS offers more incentives for people in all sorts of communities to use it, whilst Xenforo has limited operational use.

Have used both in the past and I often revert back to IPB.

I always love ipb over any forum software.

They are quite different. Trying to edit some basic CSS or HTML code in XenForo can be a pain in the back, however you can customise quite a lot of things. However, when it comes to permissions...idk, it feels like it needs more types of moderation.

IPB on the other hand, it's easier to modify, u don't have to go through 100 files to modify something basic as the footer. This is why i prefer IPB

IPS all the way. I have over 10 years of experience running IPB don't want to lose that by switching on Xenforo.

There are some things that I just prefer IPB over xenforo. I find xenforo just a bit harder to navigate than IPB and ipb having more customization than xenforo.
