I will say this about ipb. After using it for a couple of days I’m really starting to dig it. It’s pretty easy to use and customise. I have to admit I’m liking it a tad more than xenforo too. Their marketplace is a plus and installing addons is beyond easy. I’m standing strong in regards to their pricing particularly their branding fee but regardless it really is a good software.
Yes. If one is to be critical then praise when it’s due, is if anything, more important.
My gripes about IPS are well documented on TAZ, so don’t feel the need to repeat them. On the other hand, perhaps what I haven’t said enough of is that the overall functionality of the platform, in particular ancillary functionality around for example, the management of S3, is, in this marketplace at least, second to none.
In saying that, I wish there was more collaboration on offer. Just imagine how much more progress might be made if the negative energies we sometimes see amongst the IPS client base, were instead focused positively for the good of the platform. Perhaps having this type of collaborative experience might be one of the qualities sought when IPS hires its 19th employee.
