Phpbb is a pretty decent free forum software. The main advantages with it is that it is free and provides everything you need to start your own forum. It is not a stronger forum cms like vbulletin, xenforo, ipb, Woltlab..etc but it is still a good option if you want to start a new forum that lack funds?

If you are looking at free forum software then phpBB is pretty good. I prefer myBB personally after using both. myBB has themes with the more modern looks that I like plus there are some really cool plugins for many of the features found in the paid forum softwares.

I did extensive testing and the configuration is easier with myBB. (You can also make it look like vB and XenForo if you want :thumb: )

I have not got any experience with myBB but from your recommendations on this forum software, I will try to check it out. I am planning to use a paid forum software than a free one because I think it has better features and support.

Completely agree with ulterios...Choose MYBB as i also found it easier to manage, more mods, themes and less spam.

It works very well. Does have a little bit of a learning curve to get everything setup. Also since it is open source, make sure you stay on top of updates to help reduce any security vulnerabilities.
This I would to say...:)

I didn't use MYBB and heard it is a free forum cms, saw more people switch from MYBB to Xen, VB or IPB, so I would suggest to buy a paid forum software if you possible and you will not waste your time to change your forum to another forum cms when your forum grows.
