I am new to the forum.
Well can you please tell me which one will be better to host a forum.
will that be SMF or PHPBB?
also can i add mods and hacks in SMF too.
Sorry for silly question
dont know much
smf are good but he needs some one know how to use it
phpbb are small and easy to control so ithink phpbb are best
Have years of experience with phpBb and YaBBse(smf).. gotta say that SMF is better.
Well this is an endless fight...
Just use them both and chose the system that fits you the best.
i mean, if you fill comfortable with SMF - use it!
I've had both in use on my site at one point or another, though I stuck with SMF - I like it better, seems cleaner to me. The selection of themes isn't as great, but there's nothing wrong with the software - I prefer it.
Administration is definitely better than PHPbb.
well yes I agree with you that phpbb admin control is simple.
But SMF has some futures which are really useful.
Like you see the NEWS BOX
and then many other futures....
So.....i m really confused.
SMF as it has a built in feature to allow you to just click to enable / disable mods. where as phpbb you have to sit and edit text files.
(im aware of the Ezmod mod but it wasnt very widely used last time i checked)
its also just a lot nicer than phpbb, and ive found it just as easy to use.
I'm not trying to spark a flame war here.
But imagine, if you use that auto installer and something screws up? Auto-installers are spoonfeeding people. More and more programs are getting too spoonfeeding. If you edit stuff yourself, you LEARN.
