So one thing that’s been bugging me in the past couple of months is the general state of vbulletin. It’s looking like v4 (which is what we’re running here) will not see further feature updates, and I haven’t been very impressed with v5, which is a bit all over the place.
With that in mind, I’ve started poking around a bit just to see what else is out there. I’m personally liking the look of IPB, since it’s fairly similar to vb in terms of how it all works, so there wouldn’t be a drastic change-up there. There are also more radical alternatives like Discourse.
What I’m really interested in is everyone else’s views on this. Is there a forum software you particularly enjoy using? Would you rather we don’t change a thing? Let us know!
Bear in mind that nothing’s set in stone as to when we’d switch or whether we’re switching at all. Really just wanting to get an idea of your take on it all.
