    Hey guys,

    I want some suggestions as i am planning to open a forum for support suggestions etc etc (for softwares..)

    My Req..

    1. lots Members and group membership permission options..
    2. Nice UI
    3. rating system
    4. polls
    5. smooth and ajax basic UI (basic ajax will do)
    6. strong security and spam protection
    7. good availability of addons/mods

    i am thinking of vbulleting but i heard that its very heavy (consumes lots of memory) and heard that xenforo is good.. but xenforo doesnt have large community of devs. so cant decide anything..

    can be anything.. even if its free i am fine with it.. guys give me some suggestion.. :)

    If you're looking for a alternative to vBullatin, I'd recommend phpBB. Thousands of beautiful templates, addons and mods available and high in security. In fact, phpBB is much advance than vBullatin in all terms. Check out some nice templates - http://www.artodia.com/phpbb-styles/

    Other options are:
    MyBB
    IP.Board

    Go with vbulletin. I'm running my forums in shared hosting without problems.

    Sorry, you and another person have very similar avatars and you are friends with each other. My bad though :)

    vB or phpBB, IP was relevant at one points, not seeing much of it anymore, MyBB isn't even an option.
