What is your favourite forum software?

At the moment, my favourite forum software is phpBB. I have been using it for as long as I can remember now for my forum and I love the layout of it and the fact of how easy the MCP (Moderator Control Panel) and the ACP (Administration Control Panel) is to navigate. It is so easy compared to some other forum software's.

From Paid scripts Xenforo has been good to me so far.
For free ones MyBB was my favourite back in the day.

No point using an image signature if it will only appear as a link, so have this boring text instead.

As a forum member (I have never owned a forum) I love IPB forums. They are very user friendly, fast response time and their spam prevention is great.

IPB 4 is the slowest, most resource-hungry forum software I know.

I like XenForo cause that's what I'm used to (for the most part).  However, though, that's not saying I don't have a lot of respect for other forum software.  For instance, it would be cool to get more into MyBB.  

Anyway, though, I have encountered paragraph spacing problems on MyBB and phpBB forums, but that might be due to some updating issue, as I haven't seen that problem on this forum.

Definitely Xenforo.  I've also used pbpBB, SMF, vBulletin, IPB, MyBB, and a few others.  They don't compare IMO. Smile

I develop my own forum software.
The one that's in use is quite dated and buggy, so I'm currently developing one that looks modern, and uses modern code instead of having everything 100% custom made (which makes it impossible for anyone to contribute).
Source code of the current (= the dated one) can be found [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register].

That's cool. I didn't know it was possible to design everything just like that. Great job

It certainly is possible.
Making your own software means you can fix bugs without the need to wait on a 3rd party and you can take make it work exactly the way you want, but it also means that once problems come up, the whole community depends on you.

Now the main reason this code base is buggy and messy is because we make everything entirely from scratch.
We decided to use common frameworks for its successor, so coding will be easier, and we can find help online much easier.
