      Out of XenForo and IPB, which is your favourite? Mine is XenForo, IPB has a cleaner look and is developing faster but for me XenForo seems more welcoming and easier to navigate. I like them both but XenForo has the edge for me :)

      IPB is too bloated IMO. They used to be my favorite but after the 3.2 line, they went severely downhill with IPB4.

      I feel like the new version of IPB is all over the place. XenForo is well established and is constantly updating itself to be better. I've tried the new IPB as an admin, and it was too cluttered and too much to handle.

      Has to be Xenforo for me. I found that IPB had too much going on and it just confused me to the point of where I would give up and not bother.

      I'm actually tempted to renew my IPB license just to sell it. :p

      I don't have Xenforo or IPB, but presently my favorite was Xenforo earlier Vbulletin 3.7 version was my favorite to have great designs.

      I loved IPB, but of late they been focusing too much on heavy resource. I hear you can't even support IPB 4 on a basic hosting server.

      So these days Xenforo has my love.
