According to me:-Most of the people perfer only 2 forums1) Invision power Board2) VbulletinBut i think 70% people using Vbulletin and only 30% for IPBwhy most of the people perfer vbulletin only because of two reasons1) Vbulletin work very fast as compare to IPB.IPB takes too much time to add new topic , while posting reply and .....i notice that IPB new version 2.2.1 looks great but work slowly than old version 2.1.7 and see vbullein new version it work fast2) As we are paying for IPB & VB so we should have excellent SEO for huge traffic..in this case VB is excellent. Each and Every VB user happy with VB SEO and have good traffic..but why IPB provide us bad SEO ????????????I seen top website users using Vbulletin as it works fast & have excellent SEOSO I THINK IPB DEVELOPMENT TEAM SHOULD SPEND MAXIMUM TIME ON THESE TWO THINGS TO MAKE IPB BETTER THAN VBULLETIN :cool:
Yes SEO is very important and IPB should be have good SEO, because i know lot of forums (phpBB) with good SEO and their search results in search engines are great.But I don't have feel that vBull is faster than IPS. Maybe little.
Compared to 2.3.1, vBulletin is exactly the same speed (roughly), your comparing vB to a older IP.Board version ;)
i was use vb for in my board for only reason the admin panelcan be translated so easly than IPB bec all lang in VB in lang fileand the skining very easyand also they have alot of feuter than IPB i was use vb for 5 yearsthe reason let move frome VB to IPB is the VB work fast and let alot of securty isusse but IPB not even if report itthey not handel some of it in the newest VERSION
But i think 70% people using Vbulletin and only 30% for IPB
I'd like to know how you can compare the speed of two instances of software unless they are on the same server under the same sort of traffic/load.
I love the OP posted this topic twice under an account that was mod-queued, and decided he'd just register another one since his posts were moderated.Still trying to decide if I should mod-queue the new account for evasion or not..
guys IPB is very cool, very stylishIPB take so much time to add new topic specially in new version 2.2.1 but Vb work fasteven VB have Powerfull search engine but IPB ........ :(
I'd be interested in how you arrived at that conclusion. :)
Me too. ;)
vB takes less time simply because it's boring and dull. I personally rather have the IP.Board interface and wait that extra mili-second than use some boring crap that loads that little bit faster.
Admin language files, so the admin panel could be translated for non english speakers. I know many people who loves IPB but refuse to buy it because they are not able to navigate in admin section. Is it not the aim of IP to sell as many IPB as they can?
Think the guy is talking about ajax based replies for the posts...which IPB doesnt have "yet".
I used to run vB and I can say with confidence that IPB is far superior both regarding products and customer support. The admin panel in vB is just plain ugly. What made me switch completely over was when I contacted vB support staff for some help regarding my forum and the first thing they did was accusing me of running 2 websites with one licence. The fact was one was vB and the other was IPB and they didnt notice it. :D
I don't know where you get that vb has more features than ipb. In fact, vb copied many from ipb. Plus vb is plain ugly. The thing I don't get is why most web hosting forums use vb. There aren't many large ipb forums out there compared to vb... :unsure:
And I am glad for that. It's useless and it doesn't show new posts after you submit your post.
I have no clue what you said.
I don't think we need to get into a comparison of IPB vs VB, as Matt said I'm not too sure where those stats came from but I can say with some certainty that they're incorrect, though I can appreciate your friends opinions being important to you.I think we can take from this the SEO suggestion as well as a few others mentioned, which is great. Feel free to post any further suggestions, but let's veer off any "yay IPB, boo VB" or "boo IPB, yay VB" - if you've got a feature suggestion, fantastic, it doesn't matter that another software may or may not have it.Thanks! :)
well guys IPB is very easy to use..( i think so) Easy to design as wellbut i think IPB SEO should be improved as we are paying for IPB and IPB should work faster as VBRest is fineIPB is really cool............................ :cool: Most of the hosting companies using VB because VB have powerfull SEO

Just to address a few of your concernsRegarding the bug report you linked, while I can appreciate WHY you (and others) would like it changed, and do actually agree, that doesn't change the fact that it's not a bug. This is why it was marked working as intended. I have a huge number of things I work on during the day, and with so many responsibilities, organization is a must.Hopefully, in the future, we will update our bug tracker and start accepting feature suggestions through it. However, in the mean time, feature suggestions should be placed in this forum. A user did heed my suggestion to place the topic in this forum, and it will be looked into as I've stated. :) I fully intend to change it in an upcoming release, however the topic merely belongs in this forum, rather than our bug tracer, and because the bug tracker is a component (not just another forum) I have no way to move the topics myself.As for any bug reports that ask the user to submit a ticket, just because 10 people can reproduce a bug does not mean that I can. Many times it's due to a different PHP or MySQL version, for example, or perhaps all 10 users have the same modification installed which causes the problem. In any event, if I ask a user to submit a ticket, it's because I need a live example where I can duplicate the problem - simply stating that it occurs does not help me in solving the underlying issue. :)
well guys IPB is very easy to use..( i think so)
Easy to design as well
but i think IPB SEO should be improved as we are paying for IPB and IPB should work faster as VB
Rest is fine
IPB is really cool............................ :cool:
Most of the hosting companies using VB because VB have powerfull SEO
Hello TurXaliM...it's good that you are happy with IPBIPB is very nice and easy to use for every new userBut can you tell me why most of the hosting companies perfer VB not IPB?????Don't know...let me tell you ...why ??????Everyone need traffic so for that we need good SEO and VB have Powerfull SEO. when ever i try to search in google , i found 2-3 top links of vbulletin forum users..even you have seen good traffic sites using VB like theadminzone.com , digitalpoint.com ,etc Well i seen at theadminzone people asking that which paid forum should they perfer...and they always get answer VB .You can also check this thing at TAZDon't know about people at TURKEY ...may be they love IPB but not VBThat's all depend upon you ....you can choose good traffic ( VB ) or nice forum ( IPB )I think if IPB Team spend more time to make IPB SEO powerfull then IPB will become best forum in this world
