Should I switch from MyBB 1.4?

    Hi all,

    Lately, I been contemplating switching to BBpress from MyBB1.4 (http://www.mybboard.net/) . I am wondering if it is worth the move.

    I compared the two here: http://www.forummatrix.org/compare/bbPress+MyBB

    It seems to me that the main difference is there are more plugins I would have to install with BBpress whereas on MyBB they are included.

    The reason I am considering the switch is because there seems to always be problems with plugins on MyBB, otherwise I am happy with it.

    So I am wondering, how reliable/user-friendly is BBpress? More specifically, are plugins and other Mods relatively trouble-free to work with? and overall, is relatively easy to manage?

    Of course, I understand this probably isn’t the best place to ask about this. I would appreciate it if you could keep your opinions as unbiased as possible.

    On a similar note, is there anyone that switched over from MyBB? and if so, Why did you switch over?

    I find it easy to manage, and plugins generally provide all the functionality you need, but it is unstable right now there is no release date set for 1.0. So, plan on frequent updates, and, if you install 1.0 alpha, you might have trouble finding plugins that work with it since many of the plugins were written for older versions.

    Explain “problems with plugins” on MyBB. Maybe the same problems exist with bbPress.
