PhpBB a templated style system intended to allow easy customisation that keeps the PHP code separate from the HTML.

phpbb seems more prone to spammers. I have one phpbb site that i do not promote at all and don't really pay attention to and get's nailed by spammers using some auto software.

I belong to a few SMF forums as a regular member and do like all the features available. I dunno if that forum admin adding codes for those features but i do like SMF.

I've had one forum running vBulletin for a number of years now, and think it's great, but I recently installed SMF for a new niche project, and it's working superbly. Very smooth and easy.

SMF IMHO is great as a free forum software because it is easier to use.

phpBB has too many clicks to get anywhere and setting it up so people can actually post is a headache in it's self.

I have never got past the demo stage with any others tbh as I tried SMF first on someone's advice some 8 years ago and recently tried phpBB for the first time (installed that is) and absolutely hated it.

I deleted a phpBB forum last week and replaced it with SMF.

I also own a VB 3.7 and a VB 4 license to and I find SMF admin backend similarly set up in regards to navigating around it. phpBB just didn't have enough options for me and my needs.

I am going to be using SMF on what will be dozens of forums over the coming months and years and I seriously would not be contemplating such a move if I didn't think SMF was the best free software for the job.

Nobody will convince me that phpBB or any other free forum software really comes close to SMF and as I said I have tried them all in demo mode and recently to.

I have been using VB for a few years now and tbh brutally honest SMF is the only one I would entertain as a free alternative.

It even has one thing a raw VB does not have

Wap enabled handheld friendly built in jeez VB does not have that as standard as far as i am aware (though I believe invision pb does).

That alone puts SMF in a different league to the other free forums that one can self host. I have no clue about hosted free software's as that's not even the same subject to me.

I am using phpbb and although it took me a long time to really feel comfortable with it(i am new to running a forum) i really like it now. I considered upgrading to vbulletin but will probably stick to phpbb....i do find the mods a bit difficult to incorporate though so i haven't done much of that.
