    Invision is ugly and badly designed in my opinion, too many text links dotted around which makes it confusing, and hence more time you need to spend on templates. vB not only has more features it looks great by default = less hassle.

    its all about vbulletin.

    i run a few websites and i have a vbulletin running on all of them. i sell vbulletin to my customers like candy. especially when i show them the capabilities and options, the admincp area sells itself.

    vbulletin is MUCH better then invision, or any forum software out.

    i wont even help or work on a site running a forum other then vbulletin.

    Here's a tip

    DONT BUY IPB!!!!
    If you want to try it to see how good/bad it is then go on torrents, get a copy off there and try it.
    If you then like it, change the version and copyright to match that of the last developed free version.

    However DO BUY vBulletin!!!
    The support is excellent, they don't get mad at you for saying things could be improved and offering constructive criticism, the dev. team are experienced and skilled, all the "posh" forums have it :P

    P.S I'm sure the vBulletin team delete posts too, just not as many as IPS do!

    Thanks for the word on multi quote. Is a nice feature standard with Invision, will include the modification when we cross-grade/upgrade/whatever.
    I still find it hard to believe that you have had a ticket open for 4 weeks without a response. Is this the case?

    I still would find it odd to be open that long, and you word it to seem like they take 4 weeks to respond.

    For a non-programmer, which is easier to add add-ons such as a blog, or ad sponsor ad section?

    Most anything have bloat nowadays.

    There is multi-quote mod available at vbulletin.org, maybe it will be included in a future release.

    2.4.X days? The current series 2 version is 2.3.6, and that series will not be supported forever.

    I agree about the smilies, but at least you can use any smilies out there. I kept the IPB smilies when I migrated to vB since I liked those better. I've seen a couple vB boards use phpBB smilies. So you can move your existing smilies to vB.

    Given the current ... er ... developments over at IPS we are looking at moving our sites to vBulletin. Service alone is probably enough to indicate which product is a better choice. Four weeks and counting on a ticket at IPS.

    Does vBulletin have a multi quote option btw, am sure it does but cannot locate the option?

    Forgot to add, we used vBulletin back in the 2.4.x days and Steve Mac was a top support person.

    Dear god in heaven the smilies are dreadful.

    I converted last week after 3 years using IPB....most of the time as a paying customer including Hosting.
    And I'm glad I did. I wish I'd done it a lot sooner too.

    IPB is the suck board i ever see in my life I use it ..and i hate it so bad.

    First of all Their MODS and Staff they do nto give a dume **** about They Members after they have pay for Full V.. their Support is sooo bad.

    u must go to the Client Area And wait 2 day to get support .. or maybe more..

    VB is the best support i ever see in my life best then phpBB that is a free software the poeple and user here. is helpign each other..

    but trust me .. that after u pay for ipb u will get alot of problems and u will get sick from their support..

    This is really badthink dont go to any board and they have slow support..


    VB Rulez

    If you mean quote multiple posts at once, you must do it manually with vBulletin right now. Though, I do think it shouldn't be too hard to code a custom hack for it...

    Forgot to add, we used vBulletin back in the 2.4.x days and Steve Mac was a top support person.
    And he still is. He's always around answering my strangest questions and helping me with my installations. (THANKS STEVE )

    Dear god in heaven the smilies are dreadful.
    well, each to their own... You can easily use other smilies that your crew make anyways
