    That chart is a joke. Why would people pay for vBulletin if it was worse than phpBB.

    That entire chart is inaccurate for ALL the forums listed, they've said no for features SMF does have, same for IPB.

    The only trust worthy charts of such comparison are unbiased third party comparisons, and sadly there isn't any that I know of. There is a comparison of forum software on wikipedia, but it doesn't go into any useful detail for making a decision as to which to use.

    I'd say that is subjective experiences, but I'm not sure if the one or other has extensive experience with the competitor's product.

    When I buy a car, I do not see accessories; I see the engine

    Accessories can be placed then if one wants

    Still lots of features for a product that is totally free.

    True enough, but there is a difference between skewing results in your favour (lie by omission at worst) and flat out lying And then between doing it a little bit, and doing it a lot.

    That's just not friendly....

    Ooh come on that chart is completely rediculious.I see "no" in several colums with vBulletin while vBulletin does support the feature this is unfair competion and if i where you i would go after them

    There is no other forum solution (free or paid) that is even allowed to smell vBulletin feet

    Also, someone need tell them that vBulletin 3.6.9 is released.

    Id like to note that that chart is completly biased and wrong.

    You can reference this thread for a correction.
    http://www.phpbb.com/about/features/compare.php

    The best thing you can do is try the demo and see how it works for you if you want to run through all the features.

    That's not a correct comparison chart. For instance, they say that vBulletin doesn't support Merging Posts - which it does.
