Re: PunBB vs PHPBB

Wait...there are pros to phpbb?

Re: PunBB vs PHPBB

Punbb owns phpbb with its speed.

PunBB, the FluxBB of tomorrow - today!

Re: PunBB vs PHPBB

PunBB = 259KB (compressed)

513KB (uncompressed)

phpBB = 670KB (compressed)

2.01MB (uncompresed)

punBB = smaller and faster than phpBB, most people leave websites if the page takes too long to load, I don't think this'll ever be a problem for punBB forum members (unless the servers playing up tongue)

Re: PunBB vs PHPBB

I just plain don't like PHPBB, it sucks more than a gay vampire

PunBB would win out over vBulletin imo. vBulletin may be powerful but it's also very slow especially when it's a large community.

Dont forget about how a licence costs $160 to download it

Re: PunBB vs PHPBB

vBulletin is for serious forum communities that need all the extra juice (reputations, advanced moderation, PM-s, user managment, modarator controll, user notes, etc.) And I'm not so shure how well would PunBB stand with a couple of milions of posts, tens of thousunds of users, etc...

And people who have invested money in a commercial board like vB or IPB are more likely to have spent money on decent hosting.

Re: PunBB vs PHPBB

I think the following URL should help:

PhpBB 3 vs PunBB

(yes, sorry if it's an autopromotion ;-)

Anyway, I think PunBB is really good and is the best when you want a fast, reliable and simple forum. If you plan to support complex features, then maybe think about PhpBB3

Re: PunBB vs PHPBB

Nice tool, btw

Hidden Topics: Extension/plugin - you have nothing
Message Rating:  Extension/plugin - you have nothing
IP Blocking: is possible via bans page

Updates Notifications :  There's an alert when admin logs in, you have it as nothing at the moment in your db
Supported Forum Migration: As it's possible for most boards to be migrated to Phpbb and PunBB supports migration from Phpbb it's something that probably isn't a factor that should stop anyone converting?

just noticed PunBB gets 1/3 for installation - and it's probably due to those two points?
I agree it could be easier of course and it's not as good as Phpbb - but 1/3... :S

Re: PunBB vs PHPBB

All I can say is that PhpBB 3's permissions system is overkill and way too complex.

Cheers,

Hello,ortzinator

vBulletin and IP Board is easy to install. But the price for those forum licenses is over $100.
