I know XF has more features than phpbb, but what makes the XF core better than the phpbb core?
Yep, xF setup and adminCP is very powerful & easy more than phpBB.
phpbb is a worst forum script ever, cannot compare it with xenforo in any features.
Why do you dislike phpbb so much? I manage 2 sites that are running phpbb.
becouse it is, worst forum script ever, so bad coded, so bad run update to new version, so bad install plugin and more ......
phpbb 3.1 and 3.2 use extensions instead of mods. It is actually pretty easy to update phpbb with the automatic update package.
good luck with phpbb
Xenforo is more comfortable than phpBB. I have tried both as admin and end user. But the good thing about phpBB is, it's free, works fine and actively developed.
I definitely prefer XF over phpbb.
I know that XF is better than phpbb from a features and user experience standpoint, but what about from a codebase standpoint?
What makes the core of XF better than phpbb?
You use both, you decide.
I like XF more.
Then that's all that matters
Why do you like xenforo more than phpbb?
Your answer will be the answer for your first question
I like XF because it is more user friendly. I have always liked XF more, but I posed this thread because I wanted to know what made the XF core more powerful than the phpbb core.
The question is actually a fair question. I think what is being asked is outside of the UX what makes XF a more powerful forum software. This question be suited for someone that has developed in both phpBB and XF. I don't think XF has had the success it has just because people like the layout of the forums or admin panel better. It wouldn't be too difficult to make any forum software look like XF.
I have worked on custom themes for both, and XF is definitely more user friendly than phpBB. The underlying code is better, the software has more features, the software just feels more modern, and overall I recommend XF if you are able to spend money on your project. If not, phpBB is a good choice.
XenForo vs phpBB for review doesn't have?
Is XF more advanced than phpbb?
