Testing Paid Forum Software

Well this week I’ll be testing paid forum software, namely vBulletin and IP.Board, as a friend of mine seems to be thinking about purchasing a license for one of them for ECC.
Without even getting very deep into them I think I may go with IP.Board, it’s pretty great.
The main reason behind this is because MyBB doesn’t have many great professional looking themes, which my friend dislikes. I’ve seen some great custom theme work done with MyBB forums however.
I’m just glad to get the chance to use one of these great sets of scripts right now.
Will post updates throughout the week.
