MYBB Review

by Ruchira on August 5, 2009

Do you ever managed a forum? If yes I think you have experience about how hard to manage them, because SPAM and other crazy things. And do you ever heard about MYBB (My Bulletin Board) which is free PHP and MySQL forum Software and which can be used to build forums.

There are so many free forum softwares in the planet. Such as PHPBB,SMF,MYBB and counting. I have used two of them they are MYBB and PHPBB (I didnt used SMF [Simple Machines Forum] because It doesn’t has many plugins and themes) But when it comes to User Friendliness MYBB can gain 10 stars out of ten! Because its very easy to manage Admin panel and plugin system.

PHPBB has the many of plugins and themes when compared to MYBB but they looks bad for me.
MYBB is 99.999% hacker proof. (Hacking community forums also using MYBB because of that :P )

Advantages in using MYBB

  • Very easy to use and manage
  • Many useful plugins available free of charge
  • Support from MYBB community forum is very very good
  • Very easy install plugins and Mods
  • I did’t have any disadvantages to mention because I’m 100% satisfied with it!!
