Very happy with it.

 

If you know your way around PHP you shouldn't run into problems you can't fix. The support team is great when needed. (you do need to license your board for support from them)

 

It's not too pricey. Definetly the best forum software on the market, including VBullentin in my opinion.

how are the options as far as controlling members?

 

along the lines of "troublemakers" and getting rid of people..

 

is there a referal option in which i should use?

 

i saw the monthly pricing, and it's not bad whatsoever, imo.

 

how much space do you/ this board require/use?

 

ok no more questions.

Uhm, Invision Power Board is just a piece of software. Tech support (Licensing) is for the actual software and costs I think 70 a year.

 

The monthly cost is for hosting, and thats different and from Invision Power Services.

 

They do not have any control over the users on your site, you control them.

 

Where did you see those monthly prices?

To answer your question of what this site needs, more than any of those options offered. We eat bandwidth for breakfast here.

Charles is not the owner of Invision Board. He's the President of Invision Power Services.

 

Plus, you do not get much bandwidth for free on FF and never get an unlimited bandwidth package.

i thought you said you didnt know of any places that get bandwidth for free or unlimited bandwidth?? (is that comment implying that invision DOES have those options?)

I was replying to AJ because he answered your inquiry with a link to FF and they do not offer unlimited bandwidth.

 

You never asked me for free bandwidth.

 

IPS Hosting does not offer free bandwidth or unlimited bandwidth.

Maybe a little late, but let me throw in my two cents. It is possible to use Invision Power Board (any version) for free...not Invisionfree, IPB. IPB itself costs nothing. They have an unlimited free trial version that a lot of people use. Also, it is possible to get free PHP/MySQL hosting for it for free, a good Google search will turn up a lot of results. As far as managing members, IPB is as good as any forum in that respect. There's not much more you can do than there is on IPB. You'll only run into problems with IP's if they have a dynamic IP, or are smart enough to use a Proxy server to get around the lame IP ban. I don't konw PHP, but personally I've never had any trouble with IPB. It's a good idea to know some HTML/CSS first though.

You won't find much bandwidth on free hosts.

 

You can not use IPB for free as a permenant site. Under the 2.0 license if you intend to use the software permenately you must register it or you are breaking the rules.
