  • My biggest gripe about IPB and phpBB for that matter is the font size used. After using vB which uses a nice size font. If you then go and post on a phpBB or IPB board. The font size is way to tiny.

    Its about the same size as were it says "Senior Member" below my name.

      The font size looks exactly the same to me... Maybe just slightly smaller. But it's not like that can't be changed...

        Yeah, out of all honesty vB is actually more expensive. And IPB's perpetual license actually offers lifetime upgrades and support for $30/year after the first year, which I find "better" and more commonly done to pay for support. I would rather have lifetime upgrades than lifetime support because after the first year you learn the software really well and are able to fix problems yourself.

          If only, not all of us are php whiz kids unfortunately and never will be.

            You'd be surpised that more people require support in compared to the people who want download access. Many people refuse to upgrade for whatever reason for ages but require support for their version for as long as they refuse to upgrade.

              Me too.

              (note to Zach: this expressing my personal opinion on what *I* prefer, not my perception as to a customer base.)

              As far as the thread topic, I love the integration of everything. They have some very compelling features outside of the forum. This Nexus thing they're talking about looks particularly interesting. This is the first I've seen of it, but if it will fit my future needs I'll definitely be picking up a few licenses with a few add-ons. Kudos to IPS for putting together one heck of a great package, probably their greatest strength right now.

              • To be fair while I agree the Nexus thing is looking like an exciting new add-on for there board. Unless your selling a product - most people would have little or no use for it. But if a person is set on using a board for support to sell a product online. It is a real temptation to get an IPB and Nexus licence.

                But that depends if your a seller. If you are it does seem to have just about every sales option you could wish for to run a serious online site selling wares.

                  The uses I'm thinking are for selling something. I was thinking I could set up a customer support forum, customer support/billing w/ Nexus, a company blog and a site with their CMS... that's pretty compelling.

                  Makes me wish I had a company right now just to play with the toys

                    Actually, Nexus is an independant product, not an actuall add-on for IPB. I'm one of the testers for it.

                    It's actually a pretty useful product if you're a web host, or sell products (like forums skins, downloadavle software, etc.) and in the future (v1.1) it will be able to handle physical products as well (say, t-shirts and mugs). Overall, it's a very nice product.

                    It will support forum registration through Nexus as well, not just for IPB; you can write modules for it so people can be automatically registered in the forum such as vB if you code it right.
                    Congratulations on the death of vBulletin, Internet Brands.
