Hey I was wondering. Would you guys consider switching over to phpBB since I believe it has more functionality. IPB is tight, but once more members start registering, I think maybe phpBB would be better. Again, IPB is cool and all :)

phpbb has more functions? like what?neowin runs IPB. for bigger boards, vBulletin is a better alternative. but cannot afford it anyways. :)

Well I don't know all the functions, but almost everyone says with phpBB you can really customize it. as for vbulletin, that's kind of expensive.

phpBB is good if you want to customise it a lot, but I would say IPB is the best board out of the box :)I think its better to stick with it ...

the problem with IPB is that the free version now is pathetically limited.

IPB is way better than phpbb . Recently 5-6 exploits of phpbb broke up in wild (check seclists on some good site like k-otik) and numerous sites were hacked .And as a default installation phpbb cant compare to IPB for sure .

as i said the problem is that phpBB is the only popular board application free... other applications are punBB. For lightweight boards, BBPress is under development!
