    What I meant is that you can sign up for a demo where you will be allowed to download the software and install it on your own server for a number of days. This would be like buying the software as it gives you an all-access pass across the software for you to ensure that its what you're after.

        From a developer stand point, IPB is terrible for making modifications. I have tried to make a simple SOTW mod, something that would take me no more than a few hours of dedicated work on vB, and it took me the an entire day just to find out how to even get started. The documentation is terrible, the developer tools are virtually non-existent, and there's no work I can judge off of because it seems everyone has their own way of making it work. Gave up on IPB coding after the first day and stuck to vB, where the plugin and product system is easy. Maybe if they made it easier to make third-party add-ons there would be more of them- and of better quality.

        I found the look and feel confusing. For example, if you're banned from a forum it doesn't explicitly tell you this, it just gives you a generic could not log you in error. The ability to customize your forum is difficult.

        I don't know. Maybe this stuff has been fixed as of late. But to me, IPB is not worth its price.
        Which version of IPB did you try? I know that they have been improving their plugin system significantly in IPB 3.2 which seems to have a positive effect on the number of new addons.
        I agree that some functions makes little sense when you are used to these working well in vb. But it goes the other way around as well. Once you are used to IPBs notifications grid and report center, it becomes highly annoying that vbulletin does not have such basic functionality.

          I like the default style / user interface of IPB better, but you can change this of course in vBulletin too, it'll only be more work.

          On the other side, I must say, I like vB's feature set and how easy it was to build a system around it. + The facts named in the first post.

          In summary: I would go for vB

              I don't think that you can download the software and install it on your own server.
              It is installed on their server,you can use it for a few days.


              vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

                What restrictions are there?
                Some functions that would allow access to the database or file system are disabled in the demo. We don't provide FTP access for demo installations, so some freedom you'd have with a full installation will be unavailable. Unfortunately, we're unable to offer a private demo of IP.Chat at this time. Apart from these minor restrictions, your demo is fully functional. "

                Are you lying to try to make IPB look better or are you just seriously incapable of understanding English language?

                  On a side note.... There is also a free (open source) skin to make vBulletin look like IPB 3.1 and another skin in development to make vBulletin look like IPB 3.2 / 3.3 (also free and open source)
                  Where can I find this?

                          I'm not sure about IPB, but there's no radar included in vB.
