I am in need of another forum script as I have been using free forums for around 4yrs now and there times seems to have passed now.
Can anyone tell me why or what the benefits are in buying a script over using some of the many free ones that provide very good support, add-ons, themes etc and mostly for free as well.
What will this script give or provide me that other free ones won't?
From what I can see this price for a forum compared to free ones would have to provide a super fantastic forum which allows for multi forum sign-up and sign-ins, security features beyond the normal free ones coded in, mods to be installed using an inbuilt installer in admin panel and so much more.
After comparing the demo with my current script and those of other free forum scripts and finding that xenForo doesn't really offer anything special or different than what other free forums scripts do and in fact they offer much much less when it comes to usability features and controls so why should I pay so much for is available totally free.
From what I have seen the add-ons are no better and in fact do less and yet charged for.
I am asking anyone who is capable of proving to me that paying this much and even anything at all for this xenForo script is far better than using a free forum script which offers more than xenforo does from what I can see so far.
Your comments please.
NOTE; This is not an attack or what ever you may wish to call in on xenforo or it's script as I am not that kind of person.
I do however want to know what the differences are between using a free or paid forum as I am genuinely looking for a new forum script.
