    Best Forum Software

    In case you havn't gotten around trying them all, I have installed all three here:

    http://forums.duskknight.net/

    All are out of the box installs, and have not been customized /at all/

    Any input, likes/dislikes, and whatnot would be helpfull too

    Thanks,
    Nicholas (Dusk_Knight)

    I prefer YaBB over phpBB for some reason. I feel that YaBB gives me more ease of use and power.

    ok, the problem with phpbb is, have you ever had multiple skins and tried to mod it? you have to install the mod to each skin, and some skins have a weird design, and gets pretty messy

    for this reason i will NOT use phpbb

    the problem with SMF is not all the features are totally working yet, and there is very few skins i can find for it..

    The problem with IPB is what was once a nice, easy to use admin panel, is really starting to bother me.. with bloat. and its ugly out of the box. Out of the box SMF looks the best.

    That is one problem I have with it, but it's not a huge problem, just annoying.
