Best forum software? phpBB vs MyBB vs bbPress vs ??

Post by dilipjadhav »

Years and years ago I started up forum running on phpBB, as it seemed like the best choice back then. As it was open source with a large and active user base.

Ran the forum successfully for many years until my interest drifted away.... now I'd like to start up another forum, is phpBB still the best choice? Or has time moved on, and I should go with a more modern option? From looking around it seems like the top choices now are phpBB, MyBB, & bbPress. Anything else, which is preferable?

Hello welcome(back) to phpBB.

It’s a bit of a pointless exercise asking here what the best software is as it will be one sided. There are more similar topics if you look around, it has pretty much been discussed to death. Anyway, it’s quite obvious to me that phpBB is the best😊
