I am not new to xenforo but i am worried about xenforo features. well before i had no issue with xenforo, as i was working on a xenforo forum which was build by a rich company. as it was build by a company so the has used some custom modules, themes to get all complete features. when i checked default xenforo features, i started worrying. Now i have options to use IPB & Xenforo.
IPB have more advance features which xenforo do not have.. or need to spend more money for addons.
- Custom Thread Icons
- Nice And Good Quality Themes are avlaible
- IPB Default front end & backend default UI are really awesome ( You can stay with ipb default theme, as it is nice looking and you do not need to spend money to buy new theme.)
- Theme Options ( Best of One ) - Theme option are really much better... it's alsmost like wordpress theme options. but xenforo theme options are going over my mind.
- More Social Integration Options
- Inbuilt Meta Tags
Here Added More : -
- VigLink Inbuilt Integration
- Mandril Integration
- Email Management ( Emails Templates Can be Customize by Self )
- Security Center
- Q&A - A forum type
So please let me know... where should i start ? Xenforo Or IPB ?
