    Im building a forum and I have an Idea on what kind of site I want to model it after is there a way where I can look at the code to see if its smf,phpbb3 or mybb because I've heard good things bout all three but from the research I heard its a big difference when it comes to user friendly ,customization and etc.... I want to give my subscribers a visual treat mix with standard forum ..if that make any since lol thanks BHW

    vbulletin and Phpbb3 works same but there are afew things are different during customization, but I would definitely recommend phpbb instead of vbulletin. Rest is upto you whatever you prefer.

    You can actually go for mybb if you want a free one. But vbulletin is good if you can spare for it.

    -Thanks-

    Vbulletin = Pro
    Ip.board = Normal

    Free
    PHPBB = Good
    SMF = Good
    Mybb = User Friendly

    I really like vanilla forum, too. The user experience is a little different than people will be used to but it's fast, reliable, and easy to customize.
