I have a phpbb system that i personally installed a couple years ago. It has around 400 members around 50 active members who post daily. The site has gotten hacked a couple times and i have lost many valuable posts. I like the look of the Vbulletin setup and i want to incorporate a banner setup and adsense presence on VB. I am in the process of hiring some via Elnce to do the php to VB swap for me.
My question is, is Vbull a solid setup for good growth and security. PHPBB got spidered well from G and Yahoo and i want the same from VBULL? Is this a positive upgrade for me?
A member on a phpbb forum of mine asked if an upgrade to vbulletin was on the cards, I replied saying I know little about it. What are the benefits of vbulletin over phpbb and why would I want to upgrade? Are there performance benefits? is it more user friendly? (Hacking is not a problem) I'd appreciate any info, especially from someone who has made the upgrade.
