  • vBulletin or IPB?

    I like vBulletin better (I think), but IMO IPB looks better and I like the IPB admin CP better. So, choosing, I'd say both.

    You are asking this on vb.com, plus you display the names of those who vote. I don't think your results will be predictable.

    Although IPB has some really interesting functionality that vb does not have, I am not thinking about jumping ship. I am quite pleased with vb. Although I do wish they would hire more staff to pump out more good stuff.

      I voted none of them, only really worth voting when IPB3 and vB4 are with us.

          Eek!

          IPB is the first paid script I used. I was fine with it. But once I discovered the bigger and better thing -- vBulletin -- I never looked back.
          I now hate IPB from the standpoint of a regular member. The interface just really annoys me to no end.

          So vB is my choice
          Regards,
          Nick

              i think vbulletin board is far better than any versions of IPB, but again IMO your asking this Poll on a vbulletin Board which i think will be Predictable in who wins the poll

                Ridiculous poll to have on a vBulletin powered forum.

                I voted vBulletin: But I might be biased.

                    I thought this was interesting. Draw your own conclusions.

                    Google search "Powered by vBulletin" - 79,200,000 results
                    Google search "Powered By IP.Board" - 2,800,000 results

                    One of three things is going on. vBulletin powers more forums, those forums are larger, or those forums are indexed better.

                      I voted vBulletin. I might be biased, too.
                      In fact, I am.

                        This is liking going to a Republican convention and asking if they prefer their own party or the Democrats.

                          Unbiased: big-boards.com > statistics , all the top 25 together aren't even close to number 1: vbulletin.
