    Hello everyone. I am having hard time to choose which forum to choose for my website.
    I know so many people asked this question. but I want to know which one is the best at the moment (around april 2014).
    To me the price is not a problem. I am not bragging about it but I want to know which is the best excluding pricing comparison.

    Please give me suggestion.
    SEMrush
    Thanks :)

    Everyone is talking this days about Xenforo. You will hear also about VBulletin or IPB. All are good and have a great number of functions. U need to enter their websites and take a very close look of the features and decide after.

    I would say Xenforo, this forum used to be using Vbulletin, but after it switches to Xenforo I must say everything looks great.

    I second Xenforo. Very different and offering some services that other forums are not... very social, as well. That's what attracted me to it. And it's easy to customize, color-wise and "genre" wise. There are a lot of addons to customize the site for your needs. :)

    Xenforo, Invision power board (But that IS an aquired taste), or give Burning Board 4 a try (Just been released)
    And avoid Vbulletin like the plague.

    Not likely, vbulletins market share is decreasing at a rate of about 1% or more a month

    See https://tools.digitalpoint.com/cookie-search

    Click the Show historical charts button to see the decline
