      Whatever the forum owner is using, I tend to say away from Mybb forums though.

      It is not I agree :) it is much like vBulletin and great for forum owners who can't afford a vBulletin license but want something similar :) probably the best free software I would say.

      Use MyBB and true it's one if not the only best free forum software out there.


      Wondering why, is there something that is just bad about it or did you have a bad experience with a forum using MyBB?

      I'm currently using Invision Power Board forum software, hosted by Invisionfree. I really enjoy it, lots of features, excellent interface, nice appearance, all sorts of goodies and it's free. Great success. [/Borat]

      I've got licenses for all three major paid softwares.

      I use IP.Board on both Gaming Madness, and Off Topic Hut.
      I use XenForo on The Geek District
      I use my own custom forum software (MikeyBBS) on The Admin Shack

      I don't use my vBulletin licenses on any sites since vB4 and the fiasco. :doh:

      (sorry for all the links! Didn't want to spam .. :/ Feel free to remove them :/)

      I use MyBB for mostly everything. It's simple and free and does what it says with plugins extending the feature set.

      MyBB is great free forum software. Probably the best free forum software IMO. Commercial is still the way to go though if you have the means of doing so. :)

      My favorite used to be IPB but over time that has shifted and changed and now I like MyBB more than any of the rest. XenForo though is on the rise and only getting better. I have never administered a Xenforo forum but I am looking forward to working on the back end of it and seeing all the features it has.

      I use myBB. I found it to be the most secure and feature rich. I have used phpBB in the past but myBB is alot better! In my opinion, phpBB was too plain and simple.
